BRAMEZZA E CARACOI

BRAMEZZA E CARACOI

Ancient buildings reminiscent of Ottoman architecture and legends telling of inhabitants from far off lands: Caracoi and Bramezza, two small villages which have been almost completely abandoned, reveal an unusual chapter in the history of the valley, a past marked by exile and imprisonment.

According to popular tradition, Ottoman prisoners of war were sent here by the Venetian Republic to serve out their sentences.

The ancient hamlet of Bramezza is a truly unique place in the Dolomites with its rare Islamic architecture set against the marvellous backdrop of Monte Civetta and the green waters of Lake Alleghe. We suggest you a walk to see personally the beauty of this place. Starting point from Santa Maria delle Grazie, a little hamlet between Alleghe and Caprile. 

SERRAI DI SOTTOGUDA

Just a couple of miles from Alleghe is Serrai di Sottoguda, at the foot of the Marmolada, a deep canyon hewn out of the rock by the mountain stream Pettorina, a wonder of nature created over the centuries and now a nature reserve.

Open all year round, the canyon is particularly spectacular in winter with its vertical walls and fairytale frozen waterfalls tinged with myriad shades of blue and the muffled silence typical of the season - an unforgettable thrill. In winter that's one of the most beautiful destination for the lovers of ice climbing. In summer a walk on foot or on the typical little train will let you discover one of the most spectacular site of the Dolomites Unesco.

 

 

SELVA DI CADORE E VAL DI ZOLDO

SELVA DI CADORE E VAL DI ZOLDO

If you're on the road toward Staulanza Pass, we suggest you a stop in Selva di Cadore. It's a ski resort with access to the Civetta Ski area. It's mainly known as a winter resort but in summer it turns into a sunny valley far from the traffic and starting point for many escursions. You can't miss a visit to the stone were you can see the footsteps of the dinosaurs or to the Mondeval Site where few years ago Vittorino Cazzetta discovered the tomb with the rest of the Man of Mondeval, now hosted in the Civic Museum of Selva di Cadore.

Going on from Staulanza Pass, you'll arrive down to Val di Zoldo, known as the land of ice cream makers, for the many people who in the past left these places to look for fortune around the world with their art of ice cream masters. Val di Zoldo together with Selva di Cadore and Alleghe is part of the Ski Civetta area and is an entrance to the ski area. Ideal destination for families with kids. Everything here, from the accommodation to the services are tailor-made for children, with many cultural, sport and recreational activities.

 

 

 

LOW AGORDINO

LOW AGORDINO

The town of Agordo, on the road to Alleghe, and the San Lucano Valley, amid mountains and charming valleys, are two more examples of interesting and stunning scenery.

In the National Park of the Belluno Dolomites, just follow the old paths made by the miners and you will reach the mines of the Imperina Valley.

There you can visit the buildings where they used to process the minerals and the entrances to the tunnels, and learn about the lives, marked by sweat and toil, of the hundreds of coal miners who lived there. These are just some of the wonders you can discover around Alleghe.

BIOIS VALLEY

You can't miss a visit to the village of Canale d'Agordo, only 14 km far from Alleghe. This is a little typical mountain village of Valle del Biois known becuase it's the birth place of Luciani Pope. It's still a place of ancient pure mountain flavours. A part from the sightseeing to the sites of our beloved Pope John Paul I, from here you can enter one of the most spectacular places of the Dolomites, Gares Valley, known in winter for the cross-country skiing, and in summer as a starting point for escursions and climbing.

If you drive further along the Valle del Biois you'll reach Falcade, famous winter and summer resort at the foot of San Pellegrino Pass. A part from the natural beauty and the ski slopes, Falcade is popular because it's the birth place of Augusto Murer, an artist known all over the world and whose works are hosted in the family museum in Falcade.
