Daiano

1190 m

The distinctive village of Daiano lies on the road that, from Cavalese, leads to Passo Lavazé. Daiano is one of the tiniest villages of Val di Fiemme, but also the place that can boasts of the most hours of sun throughout the year.
You can recognize the village thanks to the onion-shaped bell tower of the Gothic church dedicated to San Tommaso, built in 1761. On the walls of the most ancient houses there are several sacred frescoes. The buildings show the typical architectural features of the valley, such as monolithic fountains that decorate the streets or the “Roman” house, also called “Castello” (bridge), which is another Gothic and giant building, or the wooden houses and their strict and rustic appearance. 
Daiano is the favourite destination for good food&drink lovers, thanks to the handcrafted brewery and to the production of speck ham. From the village you can take naturalistic courses that overlook the mountain chain of Lagorai. Both the ski lifts of Pampeago (Ski Center Latemar) and of Alpe Cermis are situated near Daiano. At a short distance from the village, there is Lavazé, where you can admire the natural sunset show, the moment where the Sun hides behind the dolomitic mountain groups of Catinaccio and Latemar. In winter, Passo Lavazé turns into one of the cross-country best places in the world, thanks to the breathtaking tracks that wind even in the woods.
