Fanes' places: the Pralongià
long meadow-covered wide ridge stretching from Corvara
up to the Sett
is a wonderful balcony with a view over several among the finest
composed by tender marls
of the Carnian,
very rich of fossils,
the Pralongià consists of a wide, soft- and
flat-outlined plateau, surrounded by lofty mountain groups displaying
their abrupt dropping cliff walls.
the saga, it represents the battlefield
where the Palaeo-Venetic coalition army, overwhelmingly superior
in number and weaponry, is attacked by the Fanes on surprise,
presumably during the night, and brought to the verge of disaster.
But then sunrise comes, Dolasilla is wounded to death and the
fate of the battle turns in favour of the coalition
visible from: Upper Badia valley, Sella
Group, Gardenaccia, Sett Sass...
Pralongià seen from the slopes of the
Sett Sass; on the background are the Sella
Group, Gardena pass, Pizzes da Cir and
paradise for alpine skiing in wintertime, the Pralongià
can be accessed by lifts on all sides and is the scenery
for several long, very easy walks. More interesting is
the loop around the dominating Sett Sass, with
many war remains.
