Masi di Cavalese
Among sundials, decorations, gnomes, wooden sheds, lush gardens and breed horses, time stops around the old farms of the tiny Masi di Cavalese. In this little village populated by hard-working people, there are plenty of artisans and even an accordion repairer. This hamlet lies three kilometres far from Cavalese, on the shores of the water stream Avisio. People usually call it “the rainbow village” because, almost after any shower of rain, a rainbow makes its appearance above its houses and fields. Going walking amid ancient houses, agritourisms and haylofts, you can meet several farm animals. Do not forget to have a look at the church dedicated to the Holy Trinity, erected in the Eighteenth century. Masi – which lies near the ski lifts Alpe Cermis, the track of Marcialonga and the Cycle Lane fo the Dolomites – is also a starting point for excursions in nature. For example, there's a beautiful walk passing through Salanzada, among firs and meadows, and getting at the Waterfall of Cavalese. Other routes are directed to the wild mountain chain of Lagorai. In Masi you can also try the thrilling Avisio Rafting experience, down the water stream Avisio.
