A day to discover Val di Zoldo and its artistic treasures, a journey through time to understand the life of these mountain villages.
We are in Veneto, in the province of Belluno, surrounded by the Dolomites, in a wild natural setting, inhabited since the time of prehistoric men. Our itinerary begins at Forno di Zoldo, small quaint town. Here you can stay in a typical building dating back to 1700, made of wood and stone, at the B&B Dormì e Disnà, for really striking nights.
The itinerary starts from the center of Forno, climbing the stairs that lead us to the church of San Francesco, near the Captain's Palace, seat of the interesting Museum of Iron and Nail, which shows us how the material, that long characterized the economy and people's lives, was worked.
We climb to the right the Ria de Canp, which leads us to Campo, in a climb among the houses which subsequently opens giving beautiful views of Forno and Baron. We meet a characteristic covered wash, then the road becomes steeper and we reach the first houses of Campo. Turn left, cross arise and go up to "la strada dei Sass" up to Pieve. We reach the square where stands the church of St. Florian of the fifteenth century with an elegant bell tower. Do not miss a visit to the church square, which offers a breathtaking view of all the mountains of Val di Zoldo.
The next destination is Bragarezza, an attractive village that hides several ancient tabià, old house that still retain the popular frescoes, nineteenth-century fountains and the church of San Rocco in 1600. From here we go back towards Forno.
