This route starts and arrives in Tonadico, one of the oldest villages in the Primiero Valley. The itinerary ideal for those wishing to explore the areas, rich of forest and meadows, overlooking the villages of Tonatico and Sirór. The most beautiful point of the trail is definitely when it passes by the location of Piereni, with its beautiful pastures placed in the shadow of the isolated peak of Monte Cimèrlo, in the Canali Valley.

The route begins in the proximity of the church of Tonadico, with a steep stretch along the road that goes from the village towards Strina, climbing east of the cemetery of the Church of San Vittore, that looks the whole village from its isolated position. Right after passing the cemetery, the route continues on a path that starts on the right side of the road and gently climbs the coast towards Val Canali / Villa Welsperg / Piereni, marked as Signpost No. 719.

The trail continues on a mixed background of forest and meadows, with some remarkable views on the several farms and “tabiádi” (tr. huts) of the area. The Signpost No. 719 proceeds along the slopes of the forest, on an increasingly stony way. The last stretch, just before crossing the gravel road that leads to Val Canali, is characterized by the passage on three small wooden bridges. Once on the gravel road, the route proceeds for just over a hundred meters towards the north east, along the road, for than taking the again the path of the Signpost No. 719, which leads directly to the location Pieréni (1,215 m asl), on a last stretch which is very characteristic, with its stone walls.

From the pastures of the wide basin of Pieréni, very touristic and always particularly well-kept, the route continues along the asphalted road towards Tàis / Petina which, after passing the meadows of Pieréni, enters a beech forest in a stretch that leads, in just under 2 km, to Tàis (1,212 m asl), a well-known panoramic area and take-off point for paragliders. From Táis the sight opens to the south, overlooking the entire Primiero Valley, with – from east to west – the Cimonega mountain group and the ranges of Vette Feltrine and Lagorai. From Tàis the descent towards the bottom of the valley begins.

Initially, the itinerary follows the paved road towards Tonadico marked as Signpost No. 734, on the wide lawn of Tàis. After a few hundreds meters, the road is left behind along a path indicating Poline. Once at the end of the path that runs through a long and narrow meadow western of the hut of Maso Tàis, at an altitude of 1,143 m asl, right where the path seems to be almost interrupted, a small track that descends steeply into the forest towards Sirór starts. Following the small track, which will take you to the paved road of Ronchéti, you will be able to reach the center of Sirór shortly.

From the village of Sirór, in order to return to the starting point, it is enough to follow for about a kilometer the road called “campagna alta” (tr. high countryside), which connects Sirór with Tonadico, along the western edges of the field separating the two villages.

  • Although Tonadico is the oldest village in the valley, of which it was the political center and residence of the “captain” of the castle called “Castello della Pietra” – perched in the north of the village -, an etymological origin of its name is not clear.
  • Tonadico preserves some monuments of particular historical and artistic importance, such as the Church of San Vittore, which takes its name from the patron saints of the Municipality of Feltre (at the time of its construction the territory was part of the Diocese of Feltre), the so-called Lisièra and Palazzo Scopoli, built in the year 1000 AD, which had an initial function of warehouse for the local community and then became the residence of the vicar of the Bishop of Feltre.
  • The Church of San Vittore, built between the 5th and 6th centuries, is the oldest in the Community. The small church has inside numerous frescoes of great artistic interest.
  • The inhabitants of the town of Tonadìco bear the nickname of “strighi” (tr. witches). The origin of the nickname can be led, with a slight forcing, to the legends around the castle and to the fact that the inhabitants were considered malicious, perhaps as a result of the middle age witch trials, held in Tonadico.
