THE CALÀ DEL SASSO

The path ascends to the side of the Valley in large loops, then shrink abruptly until a few meters wide. On the side, under a cliff or Chaudhary, capitals can be found with simple religious representations. The capital of San Antonio marks the middle of the path; higher contrast, springs and Moss, military shelters and the profile of a great outcrop that always seems ready to ruin. Finally, the effort is rewarded when an opening between two rocks to the top of the Valley suggests the clearing of a clearing. And Calà is over.

With its well 4444 stairs, Calà del Sasso is Italy's longest stairway (and among those open to the public, the world). The Calà colleague Valstagna, located in the Brenta Canal, to the hamlet of Asiago, Sasso, on thePlateau of 7 Municipalities, Vicenza.

The path of Calà del Sasso, which from top to bottom measures 744 metres, is mostly lined with a Groove in limestone (e.g. steps), once used to transport timber downstream of the plateau. Wood, that going for Calà, arrived to the River Brenta and was then able to sculpt up to Venice, where he was employed in the construction of boats.

«How long purgatory, dark as the storm, the ladder that takes you up there on the Asiago plateau. Quattromilaquattrocentoquarantaquattro, steep steps from beasts, tiring already to appoint them. Depart from Val Brenta, under every Defender peaks, at the point where the Valley-coming from Bassano-it seems split in two at a country called Valstagna, with its wall of old houses of levee. The alert takes the left split and burns in a Flash 810 metres. It's called «Calà del Sasso ", and is one of the most beautiful in the Alps. '
