The Pizzo Filone, also called "Al Filòn" in the local dialect; is a pyramid shaped mountain with 3 sides, located in the area between Livigno Valley
and the Val Viola.
It is one of the highest point of the area with Piz Paradisin
3302m and Corna di Capra
It appears with a good looking shape from every sides. From northeast above the "Vallaccia", from west with steep slopes on the "Valle delle Mine", and from south with rocky cliff overhanging the "Val Viola".
