The ancient Art of falconry

Among the most royal birds of prey, falcons are the protagonists of a fascinating and ancient show, made even more impressive by the panorama that can be admired from the Ciampedie

Programme: on the high plateau of the Ciampedie, in the realm of King Laurin, where the peaks kiss the sky, the fresh air smells of freedom and the wind dances across the steep cliffs of the Larséch, a unique event takes place: an exhibition of the ancient art of hunting that will leave spectators spellbound and pay homage to the power and elegance of birds of prey. Dizzying swoops, tight turns and elegant glides seem to defy the law of gravity. Every movement is a dance. With a rustle of wings and a high-pitched call, the falcons soar through the sky, expertly guided by their trainers with surprising complicity, underlining the deep and respectful bond between man and animal. Consider that the first evidence of falcon hunting takes us to Mesopotamia and China. It was most widespread during the Middle Ages and was even practised by some kings, such as Charlemagne and Henry I of Germany. At the court of Frederick II, in the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies, falconry even became a real science.

Activity open to all and organised by the "Catinaccio" mountain lift company.

Meeting point: at 10 a.m. at the top station of the cable car.

Registration: not required. Price: free activity included in the Panorama Pass or in the lift ticket.

 In case of rain, the activity will take place by the events pavilion in Vigo.
