The path


  1. From the Abbey of Follina the hiker goes back to the little village of Marcita where he hooks up to the itinerary “The Path Three Bridges – Zuel di Qua”. In order: ascent to Roncavazzai, famous loca?on for the legend of “Madonna del Sacro Calice” still kept in the nearby Abbey of Follina, then to Costa di Zuel walking on the ridge, church of Santa Eurosia, church of Santa Lucia, Zuel di Qua. From the ridge, possible interconnection with the village of Cison di Valmarino using the path “Troi del Lat”.
  2. The next stretch Zuel di Qua, Zuel di La, Afranta provides a short strech of asphalt where, however, there is not much traffic. In Zuel di Qua, possible interconnection with variant for the locality of Rolle.
  3. From the village of Arfanta the tourist hooks up to the itinerary “Le Rive di San Pietro a Tarzo” which is traveled in the opposite direction: ancient church of Arfanta (famous for the altarpiece painted by Francesco da Milano), Casa Marinoo (the founder of the city of Torviscosa and inventor of the “artificial silk”), village “Reseretta”, “Rive di San Pietro”, ancient rural church of San Pietro to get finally to the center of Tarzo. Overnight in the village.


The path is also an opportunity to experience a journey through geological history in three different moments of the world orographic formation. Looking at the map, in fact, the line does not run on the same ridge line, but alternates on three different “hogbacks” of the “Core Zone”:

  • From Vidor to the river Soligo we are on the oldest hogback of the Montello conglomerates (the youngest one is the hill of San Gallo in Soligo). We move on sediments of fluvial-delta environment (6-7 million years).
  • From Follina to Zuel di Là you walk instead on the calcarenites of Castelcucco , of the Aquitanian period (about 22 million years), very beautiful because they contain the famous whitish algal nodules (concretions of calcium carbonate) that stand out compared to the surrounding sandstone which is bluish-gray; The nodules were formed by algae from the marine environment with water depths of a few tens of meters.
  • The stage from Zuel di Là to Vittorio Veneto town moves instead on the Monte Baldo Formation, of the Serravalliano-Langhiano period (13-14 million years) composed mainly of gray sandstones, often with fossils of bivalves. These were also formed in a marine environment of limited depth but with a greater contribution of sand from the emerged continent.
