Name(s) in local language(s):
Passo del Penice, Bobbio, Val Trebbia, Provincia di Piacenza, Emilia-Romagna, Italia


The pass (1,149 m a.s.l.), located at the foot of Mount Penice (1,460 m a.s.l.), is crossed by the former State Road 461 of Passo del Penice, now Provincial Road SP 461, which begins in Voghera, goes into the Staffora Valley, passes through the little town of Varzi and Menconìco, in the province of Pavia, and from the pass descends to Bobbio in the province of Piacenza.

The mineral site is located three hundred metres after the pass, towards Bobbio, on the right (look for the falling rock safety nets).
