Double sunset is approaching in Barga
Cool event of the Double Sunset is due to a solar alignment
It takes place twice a year for 3 consecutive days: On 29,30,31 January and again 10,11,12, November
This particular event takes place behind Monte Forato in front of Barga where the sun sets first behind a gigantic open arch in the mountains then its rays disappear behind the arch.
Few minutes later a second sunset takes place.
For many centuries the people of Barga have met twice a year to enjoy the Double Sunset show
