Historically, the Val di Non has been a thoroughfare and evidence of this can be found in the many paths and Italian pilgrimages which cross the valley.
Do you like walking? I love it. Over time, I discovered that walking is the best form of meditation. So, on foot, I journeyed to Santiago di Compostela in Spain on my own. I discovered how many similarities there were between the worship of Saint James and my homeland.
I became very interested in pilgrimages and was delighted to discover that the Val di Non is a destination for some pilgrims and a calling point for others. Talking to them, I discovered that many of them follow the Way of Jacopeo d’Anaunia whilst others come from South Tyrol heading to Trento. Many others even start from San Romedio’s place of birth in Austria and walk for 12 days to reach the San Romedio Sanctuary.
