Located by the Centro Cadore lake, Calalzo sits at 806 metres above sea level and hosts the Cadore Dolomiti train station.
The village is near to the Pian di Vedoia highway entrance (A27) and is popular for its eyewear factories, as well as for its Marmarole, one of the Dolomites' biggest massif and for Lagole's extraordinary beauty.
A visit to Borgo Rizzios is a must: thanks to its secluded position, the village still preserves the building style typical of Cadore, namely clusters of houses, each with its own entrance. In the village you can visit St Anne’s church (1632), which owes its present state to Antonio Maria da Cadore, the founder of the confraternity of the Immaculate Conception. There are works by Gregorio Lazzarini and Sebastiano Bombelli, alongside a self-portrait attributed to Francesco Frigimelica and the 16th century chasuble belonging to Beato Padre Marco d’Aviano.
Renowned for its outstanding natural beauty, Val d’Oten is also the starting point for treks to various refuges, namely Chiggiato, Galassi and Capanna degli Alpini, as well as the Marmarole range and the Antelao massif.
