 Val Canali

Val Canali acts as the southern access to the Pale di San Martino Mountain Range and is considered one of the most stunning valleys in the Alps.

The road that takes visitors to the mouth of the valley is highly evocative, winding its way beneath the ruins of the ancient Castel Petra. Main features of this extraordinary landscape are the meadows of Piereni, located on the western slope of the valley at more than 1,200 m above sea level. The leading economic activities in the area continue to be farming and sheep breeding.

As evening falls, Cima Canali turns into a kaleidoscope of greys and rust-red stripes, while the remains of Castel Pietra keep watch over the entire valley. Built in the 13th century, the fort has survived through wars, revolutions and sieges. Its striking atmosphere makes it a very popular tourist attraction.
