Be prepared not only to see the unique Brent de l’Art but also to witness historical evidence about the First World War and The Middle Ages.
Leave your car at Sant’ Antonio di Tortal and cross the lovely meadows of Col de Varda, an important site that was used since the Mesolithic and was then used as a guard outpost during the Middle Ages.
Walk along the scenic ridge on the north side of the Ardo stream and let yourself be enchanted by the antique and suggestive millenary rocks at the entrance of Brent Grande
that were brought to light by the water erosion process. Stop for a moment to take some beautiful pictures and then continue your journey into the woods where you can discover the “calchere”, ancient furnaces that were used for limestone production. Along a stretch of the ancient medieval road leading to Passo S. Boldo, you can find the remains of the old water mill of the Biattole.
Return to town through the hairpin bends of the ancient road called “Trichiana-Tovena Straße” that was built in just 100 days by the Austro-Hungarian Genius in 1918 for the “Battle of the Solstice” of the Piave river during the First World War.
