Tower of Moron (route No. 867)

“Setting off from Pontenet, the route is quite difficult. All the same, the wonderful things you will discover on the way are extraordinary, especially the tower of Moron designed by the famous architect Mario Botta. Though I was a bit tired, I couldn’t resist the pleasure of pedalling hard until the very end. The view from up there is mind-blowing and the day is so clear that the Alps form a magnificent backdrop. The descent via Loveresse to Pontenet concludes a series of landscapes that are both varied and surprising.”
