About Passo del Furlo

The gorge or Furlo pass is a gorge located between Mount Pietralata and Mount Paganuccio, created by the erosive force of the Candigliano river, a tributary of the Metauro. Over the millennia it has reached a considerable depth, which however is no longer visible due to the dam, built-in 1922, which reduced the impetuous stream to a placid lake. It is located in the province of Pesaro-Urbino in the territory of the municipalities of Fermignano, Fossombrone, Cagli, and Acqualagna.
