This Interesting itinerary develops in the territory surrounding the village of Sirór, drawing a loop starting and arriving right by the village, with main destinations the locations of Dismóni and the meadows of Cosàipi. The trail, also for not so experienced hikers, does not present any particular difficulties and, in its initial stretch towards Dismóni, crosses the locality Mastiòza along the reflective path  “Nettare di vita – Prim1ero0 … a dieci passi dal cielo” (tr. Nectar of life – Prim1ero0… ten steps from heaven).

The loop starts from the parking lot located north of the village of Sirór, in the far north of the bottom of the Primiero Valley. The trail initially proceeds for about a kilometer towards San Martino di Castrozza, through the so-called “Piana de Sirór“, along the left bank of the Cismón river. After crossing a bridge over the river towards the west, the itinerary takes the Signpost No. 377 on the left, where the trail “Nectar of life” begins. The trail climbs up until reaching the church of St. Valentine, by the location Dismóni. The trail “Nectar of life” is made up of 10 reflection points concerning local historical figures.

The itinerary climbs for a couple of kilometers, crossing the main road SS 50 in the locality of Zocaril, continuing towards the location of Mastiòza, until reaching the location of Dismóni (1,280 m asl).

Once the route reaches the gravel road, the itinerary offers two small variants: continuing north (towards San Martino di Castrozza), you can admire the beautiful sight offered by the Pale di San Martino and the pastures around Dismóni; to the south, on the other hand, you can get by the pretty Church of St. Valentine, which is also the final destination of the “Nectar of life” path.

Once arrived at the church, the track heads back to the main gravel road – named Strada forestale Dismóni – towards Fiera di Primiero. After about a kilometer along the road, the route reaches the meadows of Cosàipi (1,205 m asl), where an original sign shows the names of the peaks that can be seen.

From this point, the track exits the gravel road by taking the path marked as Signpost No. 351, which continues until it reaches another gravel road, named Strada forestale Martina. After the road becomes a paved one, the route will shortly reach the meadows of “lower” Cosàipi (1,090 m asl).

Going down a few hundred meters further, on the left towards the south east, the itinerary resumes along the Signpost No. 351, which joins a paved road. After a few hundred meters, when a crossroads is reached, head south towards Pieve, proceeding for about a kilometer along the paved road, until you reach the sign indicating once again the Signpost No. 351, which descends reaching the last part of the Signpost No. 355. This last stretch crosses the hamlet of Nolésca (belonging to the village of Sirór), touching the ancient Valserena brewery.

From here, proceed for about 200 meters along the main road SS 50, which will lead you back to the starting point, by Sirór.

Church of St. Valentine


  • Located with the Dolomites of the Pale di San Martino on its background, the Church of St. Valentine (by the location of Dismóni), was built by volunteers and benefactors between 1994 and 1995. The little church was inaugurated on October 15, 1995 by the bishop of Chicago Cardinal Joseph Bernardin, son of emigrants from Primiero.
  • The church, built by the owners of the huts nearby, is characterized by its essential yet geometric lines.
  • Inside the church, it is possible to see a wooden Christ above the arch, a statue of Jesus of the Sacred Heart on the left and a painting with Our Lady of Perpetual Help on the right. On the sides of the arch, there are two wooden statues: one dedicated to St. Barbara and one with the Our Lady and Child. In the apse of the church, there is a representation of the Last Supper.
  • The church is usually open on Sunday, by concession of the owners of the surrounding huts, nowadays keepers of its keys.
