Alpine farms of the Upper But Valley

The Coglians, Pal Piccolo, Freikofel and Pal Grande peaks surround the Upper But valley and, observing their ruggedness, we can understand, with our senses and feelings, the tragedy of the Great War in the trenches. The large grazing terraces holding the local Alpine farms present, in contrast, a sweet view ornamented by the great yellow gentian, the arnica, the bluebottle, and studded by several blueberries.

Pramosio

On the path connecting Pramosio and Malpasso, you can find the headstone dedicated to the Carnic carrier Maria Plozner Mentil, who died during World War I while delivering ammunitions to front-line units.

Collinetta di Sotto

Along the way you find some ancient inscriptions attesting the existence of the road (misnamed as “Via Julia Augusta”) that connected Aquileia with the Noricum through Passo di Monte Croce Carnico. Near the crossing place, on the Austrian side, the WWI emplacements have been recovered and an ...
