The Jonny Moscardini stadium holds various festivals during the summer including the very popular three week Sagra delle Pesci e Patate. This is a festival to celebrate the close connection to Scotland where many of the locals emigrated to in the early 1900's, opening cafes serving fish and chips. Near the stadium is a marvellous public swimming pool with full facilities, tennis courts, horse riding and plenty of beautiful walks to discover. Another quieter pool can be found in Albiano which offers stunning panoramic views of Barga and the Garfagnana.
