A very good starting point for itineraries and excursions on foot, mountain bike or horseback is at Chies d'Alpago, dominated to the north by a long mountain range from Monte Teverone to Monte Cavallo and marking the border with neighbouring Friuli.
The former elementary school houses the Alpago Museum of Natural History, which offers a rich collection of minerals, fossils, animals, plants and some Paleovenetian artefacts.
There are numerous sacred buildings rich in history and art in the various hamlets scattered throughout the municipality. At Chies d'Alpago, as in the other villages of the Alpago basin, you can try Alpago Lamb, a Slow Food presidium.
Curiosities and tips
