In the village of Pescul you leave your car in the parking near the chairlift, at the end of the parking starts the trail n. 569 rising through a forest of fir trees mainly to the Alpine Hut Fertazza m 1839. After a short stop we leave the hut behind us and we head towards the start of the second chairlift from the path it takes through the woods, we pass the large trees among the oldest of the whole territory of Selva di Cadore and after a short flat stretch turn left for meadows and a larch wood where here there are some old huts once used to deposit the hay. Arrived near the Monte Fertazza at an altitude 2101m continuing to the left after a few minutes you reach the Ristoro Belvedere, but we continue to the right along the path n. 566 leaving behind us the Mount Civetta and the majestic Mount Pelmo and in front of us the Queen of the Dolomites the Marmolada and the Sella Group. Soon we reach the silent Small White Madonna of Mount Fertazza "Madonnina bianca"  which is located on a rock in a beautiful grassy area, in a place of peace and serenity in front of  the imposing NW Face of the Civetta.
