This suggestive waterfall is located in a little-known corner of Val d’Asta, on the Appennines of Reggio Emilia, and can be reached via a 500 mt long path that starts from Civago.
Along the Secchiello stream, the water has formed a waterfall of 15 mt of height, followed by many hops that have created small shallow crystalline pools.

Bucamante Waterfalls - Modena

The Bucamante Waterfalls in Serramazzoni are created by the homonymous stream that originates from the Monfestino. This stream takes its name from the legend of two young lovers, the court lady Odina and the pastor Titiro, who, due to their challenged love, decided to throw themselves into the stream.
The falls can easily be reached from Granarolo through a panoramic path that runs along the stream.
