An excursion to Armentara meadows: la Roda de l’Armentara

Our excursion starts from Furnacia, close to La Valle, that small and peaceful village idyllically situated at the foot of the Sasso di Santa Croce group.  Here starts the Roda de l’Armentara” pathway (sentiero 7A).  The Armentara Meadows can be reached with an hour’s walk through a wood.

Before them is the Santa Croce and the Sass dles Diesc. Continuing along the meadows (Sentiero 15A), we reach after an hour the sanctuary of Santa Croce after, also a pilgrimage place. After two hours of ascent overall for approx. 400 metres in altitude and approx. 6 kilometres, we can stop and have a rest.  These beautiful places allow us to stay in silence in the nature and just admire the wonderful panorama in front of us.  

One of the suggested path is the Alta Via of La Villa. It  is particularly beautiful thanks to the the fantastic panorama it offers. The route is entirely downhill on Sentiero 15A until reaching the Baita da Andrè from which we can continue the walk across the beautiful Armentara meadows until Col d’Antì.

The “Roda of  Armentara“- meaning the tour of the Armentara, in Alta Badia – Dolomites, is a wonderful trekking that takes us back to the lost time. Not to be missed!
