I left Carezza Lake for a little village called Canazei. It took an hour.
Canazei is a municipality in Trentino in the northern Italian region Trentino-Alto Adige/Südtirol, located in the upper part of the Val di Fassa, about 110 kilometres northeast of Trento. It has a population of 1,829 inhabitance (2007).
After lunch, I walked around the village. Canazei is a quiet little village. Walking the village I found a strange monument. It was made of wood and stone.
I did not know the meaning of “Ladin” at that time.
The Ladin people are an ethnic group in northern Italy. They are distributed in the valleys of South Tyrol, Fassa (Trentino), Livinallongo (also known as Buchenstein or Fodom) and Ampezzo in the Province of Belluno. Their native language is Ladin, a Rhaeto-Romance language related to the Swiss Romansh and Friulian languages. They are part of Tyrol, with which they share culture, history, traditions, environment and architecture.
Time is up. I have to go to the next destination, Pordoi Pass (Passo Pordoi).
