Abandoned villages

BORGHI ABANDONATI IN VAL TRAMONTINA
FRASSANEIT, ghost town: the itinerary starts from the village of Tramonti di Sopra, a delightful village that has kept all the charm of the past. Among its alleys you can find numerous murals that tell the village with colorful thematic designs on the facades of typical houses. Some are clearly visible, others are fun to find and remain fascinated. The trail to Frassaneit winds from Tramonti di Sopra along the orographic left of the Meduna that descends from the lake of Ciul (Ca Zul). The abandoned village gives the feeling of being in a magical place. The remains of generations go out with imagination and come alive imagining the lives that once gathered in the warmth of the fireplace among stories, myths and legends.

PALCODA AND TAMAR: at Tramonti di Sotto you turn right to get onto the paved road that goes into the Tarcenò Canal up to the prohibition where you can park your car. Continue on the road and immediately pass two fords of the same torrent (CAI trail No. 831a) and continue to the point where a table indicates the ecomuseous path to Palcoda. Continue following the CAI route n. 831 / a which climbs along a valley with interesting geomorphological aspects of the very friable rocks, shaped by erosion showing unusual shapes. At the "In Cima Pala" saddle (m.663 - table and fork for Tamar), a beautiful view of Pàlcoda where the bell tower and the church stand out among the houses. You begin to descend on the opposite side up to a few meters from the bed of the Chiarzò stream, (m.440 - junction with the path to "Il Pisulat" and Campone). Continue to the left going up, with moderate slope, the side of the stream, then you pass an anchor, later you cross the Chiarzo and with a short climb you finally reach the village (m.628).

PALCODA 628 mt: Attended since the 15th century by shepherds passing through, it was permanently inhabited only starting from the XVIIth century. It stands on land that was held by the Moruzzi and Masutti families, thanks to which it gradually became a real village with several houses. The Masutti distinguished themselves more because, at the agro-pastoral activity, they joined the trade in hats that they bought at artisan factories in Florence and sold in many cities of northern Europe, especially in Germany.
