La Valle, in Ladin called La Val, is located at 1324 m above sea level and is the smallest and most enchanting village in Alta Badia. The people in this small village live mainly from art crafts and agriculture. This is an ideal destination for all those who want to enjoy a nostalgic, traditional atmosphere amidst nature. La Valle is located at the bottom of Monte Croce in the vicinity of the Fanes-Senes-Braies Nature Park and the Armentara meadows, a small nature resort with 197 types of flowers.
In addition to the "Viles", characteristic harbours, those interested in art can admire interesting sights like the cemetery chapel, one of the oldest buildings in the entire valley, the oratory with wonderful baroque frescos, and the parish church with a precious altar.
Within a half hour walk of La Valle you reach the small Barbara Chapel, a secluded place of cult on a hill above the village. The small gothic church dates back to 1491. It was constructed by mine workers from the Valparola Valley, who quarried ores at Monte Pore. At the outer wall of the chapel you can admire an illustration of the crucifixion in free nature with figures of Maria and John.
