    Original souvenirs

    Walking through Val Gardena, you will see many lovely shops selling these products, some are actually workshops where you get to see the carving process, too, and some are overloaded with tacky replicas. If you wish to buy more expensive original handmade item, look for special Certificate of Authenticity.
    I bought one typical local decoration - a small head of troll carved roughly from piece of wood. Items like this do not need that Certificate, that’s as authentic as it could possibly be. He is a protector of home against evil spirits. Not that I've had problems with any, but you never know.

    Wood Carving Capitol

    by KristaB Written Feb 29, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Val Gardena area is densely populated with wood carvers. I guess it's because until recently they were practically cut off the rest of the world during winter and there was plenty of wood at hand, so about 400 years ago someone started carving more intricate figurines than just kitchen utensils and toys for kids, and they became skillful artisans.
    The main motifs are Nativity scenes and other religious symbols, frames and other decorations.
    There are two art schools in this small valley, one in Ortisei and one in Selva, both teaching wood carving techniques.

    In summer you can take many walks through the woods or over the mountains because there are a lot of paths. You can ride a mountainbike or take a horse and go for a ride. You can take a cableway or a chairlift and go for the top of the mountain to see a breathtaking landscape.

    One of the highlights of the Great Dolomites Road. Funicular to Lagazuoi with great views, from here over the Valparola pass to Val Badia or down to Cortina d'Ampezzo.
