There are aspects of tourism that are based on facts that are not obvious. Camporosso, for example, has no Gothic cathedrals or beaches to show off to the eyes. The salient fact here is that, coming from Tarvisio, one inadvertently switches from the Black Sea basin to the Mediterranean basin. A similar continental passage without Stelvio or Maloja-style hairpin bends can be found at Prato alla Drava, below the not-so-distant Sexten Dolomites.
A local attraction, however, is the cable car that can take you from Camporosso to the 1789 altitude of Monte Santo di Lussari, a place of pilgrimage known since 1360 and still an extremely scenic Carinthian-style village. They say there is good food, and skiing in winter anyway.
From Camporosso, the route is short to Malborghetto-Valbruna – in Friulian Malborghet and Valbrune, in German Malborgeth-Wolfsbach , in Slovenian Naborjet-Ovčja vas – a pair of villages in turn in the Val Canale valley. Striking in Malborghetto is the Palazzo Veneziano, a high-ranking residence built in Venetian style in the mid-16th century by the Pauli family, originally from Gemona. Later used as a hotel and later as a summer colony, it now houses a geo-paleontological collection and documentation on the Raibl mine.
