From San Cassiano/Sciaré to the Malga Valparola alp and to the Passo Valparola
This hike will take you from San Cassiano to the Malga Valparola alp, a historic site, where the mineral extracted in Livinallongo was transported, smelted and transformed into iron. The ruins of the smelting furnaces are now abandoned and in pieces. Today, only the German hut’s name “Eisenöfenalm“ (Hut of the Iron Furnaces), serves as a reminder of the economic prosperity, now long gone but once enjoyed by this extraordinarily picturesque place.
Follow the SS244 Val Badia road towards La Villa and continue on road SS37 to San Cassiano.
