Glazzat Alta

The hut lies near the peak of the namesake mountain in a location of astounding beauty. Its wonderful panoramic position make it a spectacular vantage point on the peaks of the Carnic Alps nearby, such as the Zuc del Bôr and the Monte Cavallo, and of the Julian Alps, such as the Jôf di Montasio and the Mangart. The area is frequented by the deer and the roe.

And then...

From the hut you can reach the Glazzat Bassa farm, then you can continue either toward Pontebba, or toward Moggio Udinese.

In Pontebba you can visit the interesting parish church to admire the Flügelaltar, a wooden altar dated 1517, the town hall with the awesome façade, the frescoes inside it and Severilla's gravestone, dating back to the Roman era. The village is home to the bridge on the Pontebbana torrent, which marked the boundary between Pontafel and Pontebba (between Austria and the Republic of Venice). Its current structure was rebuilt in the 50s, following the collapse of the previous construction. The first written record of its existence dates back to 1442. Over the years it witnessed princes, kings and celebrities, such as Giosuè Carducci, who crossed it in 1885. With the end of the Great War it lost its function because the border was moved to Coccau. In 1969, in Piazza Garibaldi, a monument was erected by the sculptor Max Piccini for the centenary of the birth of composer Arturo Zardini, known for “Stelutis alpinis”.

Other historic buildings are: Casa Micossi (18th century), Gaspero Rizzi's House (17th century), Casa Brunetti Bonfioli de' Cavalcabò (19th century), Casa Schiavi (19th century), and Casa Micossi Nassimbeni (19th century).

In Moggio Udinese you can visit the abbey of San Gallo (1119) and the Palazzo delle Prigioni, an ancient medieval tower. In Val Aupa, an awesome valley rich in characteristic trails, the hamlets of Dordola and Bevorchians are worth a visit.
