Monte delle Figne is a mountain in Liguria, northern Italy, part of the Ligurian Appennines. It lies at an altitude of 1172 metres.[1]

Geography[edit]

The mountain is located in the provinces of Genoa and Alessandria. Is divided by Passo Mezzano (1063 m) from Monte Taccone and by Passo della Dagliola (858 m) and a saddle near Cascina Carrosina (825 m) from Monte Tobbio.

Access to the summit[edit]

Monte delle Figne is accessible by signposed traks departing from Bocchetta Pass or Isoverde (municipality of Campomorone).

The Alta Via dei Monti Liguri, a long-distance trail from Ventimiglia (province of Imperia) to Bolano (province of La Spezia), passes very close to the mountain's summit.[2]

Nature conservation[edit]

North-western slopes of the mountain are included in the Capanne di Marcarolo Piedmontese natural park.[3]
