In the heart of the natural forest reserve of Palagnedra is an antique kiln in which lime was burned through the centuries.

The kiln went out of service at the end of the 19th century and was only restored again in 2002. It is round in shape with a diameter of roughly three metres, and is located near a Dolomite rock formation, a stone that is used to produce limestone.

The lime kiln is situated on one of the hiking trails extending from Palagnedra to Pian del Barch (above Moneto), at the foot of the impressive north flank of Monte Gridone.

The indicated duration includes the journey by train.
