To the Armentara Meadows and the La Crusc Church

This walk to the “Roda de Armentara” is one of the most popular spring walks in the Alta Badia.

The Armentara Meadows, located above the village of La Val, are particularly striking due to the sea of flowers that covers these meadows in the months of spring - a real must-see! Primroses, globe-flowers, anemones and gentians as far as the eye can see.

Our hike starts slightly below, at Furnacia, where also the trail “Roda de Armentara” starts. After a 1-hour’ walk across the forest we arrive at the blossoming Armentara Meadows. From a geological point of view, these meadows are located in the west end of the Fanes-Senes-Braies Nature Park. If you wonder how the striking mountain peaks in the background are called: Mt. Sass dles Diesc and Mt. Sasso di Santa Croce.

We continue our walk, after half an hour of walking we reach our next hiking destination, which is La Crusc Pilgrimage Church (Holy Cross) with the adjacent hospice. For your way back we recommend you to take the La Val High Route, which is characterised by a great panoramic view.
