The Fanes - Senes - Braies Nature Park has been included in the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites on account of its distinctive natural features.
The unique atmosphere make this hike, which starts in Spëscia an unforgettable experience.
At the hut you can taste some typical dishes while enjoying the magnificent winter landscape.
Before taking the way back along the path "Via Crucis La Val", we suggest you to visit the small church of Santa Croce dating back to the XV century.
