And then...

From the hut you can climb up to Forca Pizzul from where, on the trail, you descend directly to Cason di Lanza. By following the dirt road instead, you reach the close-by Paluchian pasture. In Salino you can admire a spectacular waterfall and, on the road from Ravinis to Monte Pizzul, the Rio Nasa waterfall, which flows on volcanic rocks.

In the small town of Paularo, in the valley bottom, you can see some famous buildings, such as the Palazzo Valesio-Calice (1591), the Palazzo Calice-Gerometta-Screm (16th century, the prototype of Carnic houses), the Palazzo Fabiani-Linussio (17th century, Linussio's abode, where Giosuè Carducci slept), the Palazzo della Canonica (1674), the Casa Tarussio (Côrt di Tarùsc) (17th century, a typical Carnic dwelling with wooden works by Sbrizzai and other carvers), the Palazzo Morocutti (1631), and the Mozartina, a small music museum with a refined collection of old instruments.

The several evocative religious buildings also have a rich history:

The parish church of patron saints Vitus, Modestus and Crescentia (1750), frescoed with an absolute masterpiece by painter Antonio Schiavi and with a wonderful crucifix, the baptistery from the 16th century and the organ of 1764;

the church of Santa Maria Maggiore (1300) with a splendid wooden altar from 1522;

the church of San Giovanni Battista (1400);

the church of Santa Caterina d'Alessandria Martire (1400) with an ancient medieval belfry and an altar from the 17th century;

the deconsecrated church of Sant'Antonio (1674);
The Chapel of Saints Fabian and Sebastian (1688);

the church of San Pietro (1715), with a precious painting of San Pietro attributed to Nicola Grassi;

The Sacello di Santa Maria di Loreto (1745), a rare example of architecture with an octagonal base;


The Santuario di Maria SS. Ausiliatrice del Monte Castoia (1870) with frescoes by Giacomo Monai from Nimis and the legendary stone with the image of the Madonna with child Jesus engraved on it.

In Piazza Julia you can see the monument built by Giobatta Segalla honouring all Fallen and Missing, both soldiers and civilians from Paularo, in the wars of 1911/1912 - 1935/1936 - 1940/1945.

The relics of a Celtic necropolis have lately been found in Misincinis.
