However, the length of the valley is limited – it is about thirty kilometers along which the landscape turns from a purely coastal environment into a mountainous area, in the heart of the Park of Ligurian Alps, where it is not unusual spotting groundhogs, chamois and eagles. Saccarello Mountain, the highest peak of the whole region, from which it is possible to see Corsica, Albenga plain and Mercantour, is an authentic crossroad between Valle Argentina, Roya Valley (Provence) and Tanaro Valley (Piedmont), thus creating a mix of cultures and traditions. Among the dialects spoken in Alta Valle, it is not surprising to find Occitan. The Valley
includes BADALUCCO, TRIORA, REALDO,
ANDAGNA, MONTALTO, MOLINI DI
TRIORA, VERDEGGIA, POMPEIANA,
TERZORIO and CREPPO.
