WHAT TO SEE IN THE HEART OF THE FRIULIAN DOLOMITE NATURAL PARK

MANIAGO
MANIAGO
MANIAGO - famous for knife manufacture. Its square, one of the largest in Friuli, houses a fountain and overlooks the Palazzo dei conti d'Attimis. Visit the Museum of Fine Arts and Cutlery.
MONTE RAUT
MONTE RAUT
MONTE RAUT - Monte Raut is the southern continuation of the Resettum range, and is the highest of the Maniaghese to exceed 2000m in height. The excursion is very rewarding because of the panorama. There are two small sections equipped with cable where you have to take care. The trip can be tiring for some.
FORRA DEL CELLINA
FORRA DEL CELLINA
CELLINA FORCE: An incredible canyon formed by steep rocks ...

The reserve is the most significant part of the great valley cut by the Cellina stream into the limestone from the cretaceous period that make up the reliefs between Barcis and Montereale Valcellina in the province of Pordenone. The morphological aspect is typical of a large canyon, the largest in the region and certainly one of the most spectacular in Italy, with vertical walls and imposing river erosion phenomena. A real "system" of forests, confluent to each other, relative to the flow of the Alba, Molassa and Cellina streams. This natural area has a particular historical value due to the exploitation of the Cellina for hydroelectric power and for the route of the old road to Valcellina.
ERTO E CASSO
La palestra di roccia
ERTO E CASSO: The Friulian Dolomites Park.

The Erto Visitor Centre is entirely dedicated to the Vajont catastrophe of 1963. It is divided into two sections:

The first section:
"Pictures and Memories of Vajont" hosts a collection of vintage photos.

The second section: "A memory space" describes in scientific detail the whole story from the design of the "great Vajont" hydroelectric basin to the process. The Erto Visitor Centre is the most important and complete covering the tragic events and also a valuable reference point for studies and research.

In 1978 rock climbing at the Vajont dam (Erto) was born on this site and is one of the world's best-known climbing rocks. Under Moliesa's rocks there are more or less 300 climbing routes of every grade. In the central part, coloured ochre yellow, are most of the more difficult routes. In that area there are routes that reach go up to 8c (11th grade).
L’immaginario scientifico
L’immaginario scientifico
THE MALNISIO POWER STATION: The former "Antonio Pitter" hydroelectric power plant is a wonderful example of industrial architecture in the early twentieth century and today is a museum run by the Science Centre Immaginario Scientifico. Inside it is possible to see the perfectly conserved turbines, alternators, machines and original finds that tell the extraordinary technological adventure that transformed the Cellina stream into an energy source. The former power station is also a prestigious theatre for the entertaining interactive paths of the Immaginario Scientifico. There is a Science Centre featuring hands-on exhibits, interactive touchpoints, to get a feel of science and technology creatively and dynamically, taking part first in what is happening around us daily. The power station is one of the first in Italy and brought electricity for the first time to the streetlights of Venice.
Poffabro
presepe
POFFABRO: ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL FRIULI HAMLETS: Poffabro is an open-air museum in the heart of Val Colvera. Its "magic power" is in the spell-like effect of cut stone and wooden balconies, austere elements, which also give a sense of intimacy and recollection in the courtyards enclosed on themselves or in the long ranks of houses of the 16th and 17th centuries. The beautiful village stands in the humble reality of pillars, stairs, balustrades and rock arches, in perfect harmony with the surrounding nature. "Poffabro, crib among cribs" is the charming event that takes place every winter from mid-December to mid-January. Between the cobbled streets of the village and the 17th century courtyards, to the most hidden corners, once enlightened, you discover over a hundred cribs, always different, tiny or imposing, simple or elaborate, from the most traditional to the most imaginative.
BARCIS
BARCIS
 BARCIS: water, land and sky overwhelm the tourist by immersing them in a wonderful and uncontaminated nature that is reflected in the lake of the same name: a spectacular setting of national and international sporting events, cultural and folklore events and Friulian traditions.

On Lake Barcis you can practice many sports:

  • Sailing
  • surf
  • canoeing
  • kayaking
  • hovercraft
  • Power boating (Barcis hosts an international race)
  • Scuba diving.
There is also the possibility of free-climbing, caving and paragliding.

"This beautiful lake, 

with this blue light,

with this crown of mountains around,

you can not feel each of them,

This as a proper place,

Then as a universal place;

And universal is poetry,

universal is this beauty

that exclaims to a person 

who was never there

Coming "What a nice place!"

(VITTORIO SGARBI)

Valcellina cycle route:

For cycling enthusiasts we suggest that you check out the following website

The magredi:
are SPAs / SICs. They cover an area of about 4,372 ha. and are part of a large flat sloping area, the main frame of which is the enormous cone of the Cellina creek. This is a thick area of limestone-dolomitic limestone sediments that are mostly of pebble, gravel and small grain sand of fluvioglacial origin, whose formation has contributed to a lesser degree to the recent Postwürmiane floods. This means that the main impetus for erosion and subsequent deposition of these alluvial materials was caused by the  Cellina glacial water, fuelled by the massive dissolution of the capsules from the end of the last glacial phase (about 10,000 years ago).  


EARTH OF MAGRI T 

To the north, the site is in contact with the Piedmontese foothills of the Pordenone precipices, while to the south it extends almost to reach the line of resurrections that separate the heights from the low Friulian plains. The characteristics of the magredi, meaning "meager" lawn, are linked to the low availability of water and nutrients for plants. One of the main peculiarities of the magredi is in fact the lack of surface water due to the particular characteristics of the soil which is extremely permeable in the context of a region which, on the contrary, is characterized by high rainfall. This condition has favoured the affirmation of this vegetation landscape characterized by lean grassy shrubs that botanists call "edaphic steppes". This term refers to the fact that its presence is due to the nature of the soil (edaphic component) in antithesis with the steppes of eastern central Europe experiencing the continental climatic regime.
