The three valleys.
At the intersection of Val Colvera, Val Tramontina, and Val Meduna.
The valleys that surround us boast pure, vibrant green landscapes and untouched beauty.
Embark on a journey of discovery by car, bicycle, or on foot, and explore enchanting villages, wander through dense forests, take in the splendor of lakes and expansive plains, or immerse yourself in refreshing streams during the summer.
Furthermore, these valleys offer a rich gastronomic experience with delectable local products and the presence of Slow Food presidia.
Val Colvera, located between Frisanco, Poffabro, and many other villages, offers a captivating experience.
Val Colvera takes its name from the stream that flows through it. It is a valley characterized by its natural beauty and numerous small villages that are nestled along the watercourses or on the sunny slopes.
The villages in Val Colvera showcase a remarkable architectural style that is one of the valley's main highlights. With their stone facades, arches, porticos, wooden balconies, and narrow cobblestone streets, these villages create a charming atmosphere where history and beauty blend seamlessly.
Poffabro, recognized as one of the "Borghi più Belli d'Italia" competition, Frisanco, Navarons, Casasola, Valdestali are just a few of the villages worth visiting.
La Val Tramontina tra Pozze Smeraldine, laghi ed enogastronomia.
The Val Tramontina, nestled between Pozze Smeraldine, lakes and culinary traditions.
One of the wildest places in the Natural Park of the Friulian Dolomites, Val Tramontina has a close relationship with water. There are several natural pools with crystal-clear and emerald waters that invite you to take a summer dip or enjoy a peaceful winter outing. Among them, the "Pozze Smeraldine" have become famous and were ranked 4th among the most beautiful natural pools in Italy by The Guardian.
On the other hand, Lake Redona hides a secret. During the summer days when the water level is low, an old village emerges from the riverbed, creating a paradise for photographers.
Tramonti di Sotto, Tramonti di Sopra, and Tramonti di Mezzo are the three main villages where architecture and art intertwine. The churches boast medieval frescoes, and throughout the villages, you'll find painted facades depicting old scenes of daily life. Campone with its Mill, a stroll to Pàlcoda, and a visit to the Selva Dam are other destinations worth exploring.
When it comes to gastronomy, Val Tramontina is known for its "Pitina" and "Formadi Frant" or "Formai Tal Cit" cheese, which delight the taste buds of visitors.
La Val Meduna, culla di panorami mozzafiato e cultura.
Starting from the top, Mount Valinis with its refuge stands as one of the most renowned centers for hang gliding and paragliding. However, even for those who don't engage in these sports, they will still be rewarded with a breathtaking panorama. On clear days, the entire Friuli coast can be seen with the naked eye.
The Val Meduna is also adorned with charming small villages, such as Borgo Del Bianco, which welcomes you as you descend from the Valinis Refuge. This picturesque village exudes a sense of unity, as houses nestle closely together. It is the birthplace of Luigi Del Bianco, the chief carver who personally contributed to the sculptures of Mount Rushmore in the United States.
Meduno, one of the larger towns, serves as a gateway to the various valleys. It is home to the Colossis Palace, and just a short distance from the town center lies the "Paludana" area, rich in fossils from the protohistoric era.
Navarons, another village along the path to the different valleys, possesses an intimate atmosphere that imparts a feeling of being in a labyrinth. Despite its small size, this place holds significance as the birthplace of poet Novella Cantarutti and Antonio Andreuzzi, an Italian patriot who instigated the "Garibaldini uprisings of Navarons" in the fight for independence against the Habsburgs.
