Continue on an ascending forest path and, finally, turn right and walk up to a small church dedicated to S. Giacomo, patron saint of hikers and pilgrims. The way back is the same as the way there until you reach a fork near a wayside shrine. Follow the signposts for Val D’Anna and return to the starting point via the Seceda cable car valley station.
