Rifugio Viel dal Pan
The footpath that stretches right across the mountain, linking Passo Fedaia with Passo Pordoi, was once used by flour merchants from the Belluno area as a quicker and alternative route to the roads down in the bed of the valley. Flour, an essential ingredient for making bread, represented an excellent bargaining product and was bartered in the Ladin valleys for handcrafted goods, as well as for other products. It is precisely because of the little path’s original use that the existing route and mountain refuge are now called “Viel dal Pan”.
