At the morning, I left Cortina d’Ampezzo for a little village of Ortisei.
Gardena Pass is a high mountain pass in the Dolomites of the South Tyrol in northeast Italy. At an elevation of 2,136 m above sea level, the pass connects Sëlva in the Val Gardena on the west side with Corvara in the Val Badia.
Ortisei (Ladin: Urtijëi) is a town of 4,637 inhabitants, situated at 1236 m above sea level and is the biggest village of Val Gardena.
Val Gardena is a valley in northern Italy, in the Dolomites of South Tyrol. It is best known as a skiing, rock climbing, and woodcarving area.
Café Corso is a nice cafe located in the pedestrian street. Excellent desserts and ice cream.
St. Anthony’s Church in Ortisei is dedicated to the Holy Anthony of Padua and is built in the Renaissance style.
The church was built between 1673 and 1676 by the artist of Closed Jakob Oberhofer, and consecrated in 1,680. The building has a simple gabled roof and heavily pitched and is prevalent in Renaissance style, it is well complemented by Baroque elements.
I walked from the church to the bus terminal. This village is very small but really beautiful. I love this village.
It is now time, I have to go to the next destination.
