Marmore Falls are cascades with a controlled steam, one of the highest in Europe, counting on a difference in altitude of 165 mt., divided into three leaps. The name comes from the warm salts present on the rocks that look similar to marble. The waters of the cascade are used a lot for the production of energy in the plant of Galleto.
This results in the fact that the cascade is not always at function but for most of the time the cascade is reduced to the dimensions of a stream. The spectacular jump from the Marmore Falls have inspired poets and artists of any historical era: Virgilio with Eneide, Cicerone and G.Byron with Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage. Since circa 50 years the cascades are used to feed the hydroeletric plant of Galleto.
