A pleasant trail (partially historical) that runs along the ridge of 5 arch-shaped hills (or horseshoe) from which the name derives. It is not demanding except the last part of the summit of Mount Ceva, on which there is a large cross with various commemorative tables (including one on the 1300th anniversary of the edict of Milan by Constantine Emperor). For the writer, it is an invasive form of his belief that contrasts with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
