Located at 799 metres above sea level, it is the last village on the slope and stands out high on the mountain in a dominant position.
Crasciana is laid out in a fan shape with the bell tower at the top with the 17th-century Guelph battlements and the parish church.
The view is wonderful and ranges from Mount Battifolle to Brandeglio, on the opposite side, up to the Controneria and Pratofiorito.
The name of Crasciana comes from the name of the Roman settler Carsius. Until the 18th century in the archival documents the name Carciana is also used.
