Jacopeo d'Anaunia Path
Val di Non as seen through the eyes of a pilgrim of time ago.
The "Jacopean Path of Anaunia", coming from an idea of Paolo Menapace and developed by the Anaune Association of Friends of the Way of St. James, offers the opportunity to learn about the great heritage of a valley rich in history and traditions, roads and paths travelled by traders, armies and pilgrims to reach the rich markets or the borders of the empire. Also used by pilgrims to reach sacred places and ask for grace and pardon.
The "Jacopeo d'Anaunia Path" connects the different places to pass through in a backpacking itinerary, following the steps of pilgrims of time ago. The route, which ideally starts and ends in the village of Sanzeno, the religious capital of the valley, is split in in stages for a total length of about 170 km over eight days.
Being aware of the quantity of evidence of devotion to S. Giacomo Maggiore in Val di Non, it was decided to revive the ancient tradition of pilgrimage in a series of stages that run along the valley's roads in the footsteps of ancient walkers.
