On the way to La Crusc, holy place of reflection

The sanctuary of La Crusc/Santa Croce, not only gives its name to one of the most imposing and spectacular Dolomite massifs in Alta Badia, but has also always been in the hearts of the valley's inhabitants. The church's whiteness, its long history handed down over the centuries and its enchanting position make it a favourite destination for pilgrims from all over the world. From the centre of San Cassiano, head towards Rüdeferia and then through the woods to the church of Santa Croce. From here you can admire a panoramic view of the whole valley, as far as the Marmolada. On the way back you will pass typical Ladin dwellings, les viles. A wonderful excursion, good for body and soul.
