Capitel de la Pause
the surroundings of Imer there are frequent ones that the locals call
the "capitei": erected along the mule tracks that lead to the farms,
they had the purpose of signaling the resting places, the dangerous ones
or where some misfortune occurred, or present inside the farmhouses as a
meeting point for prayer. They
are the testimony of the strong devotion to the patron saints, a sign
of the fulfillment of the vows expressed by the faithful, spontaneous
thanks for the graces received.
Among the many capitals present in the village, the best known of all is precisely the "capitel della pause" dedicated to the Madonna del Caravaggio (the only capital that expressly invites you not to make offers) on the Vederna road built in 1913 to replace the old crumbling one.
Church of Our Lady of the Snow
construction plans began as early as 1941, it was necessary to wait
until the end of the war for its construction to begin with the designer
and design by Albino Doff Sotta.
The church was born as a small place of worship, for the benefit of the families who spent the whole summer on the Alps, for haymaking and tending the rye and flax fields. On 5 September 1948 the chapel, also equipped with a bell, was inaugurated with a solemn celebration and dedicated to the Madonna della Neve. Although today the first frescoes depicting the patron saints of Imer (the apostles Peter and Paul, San Vigilio and two large angels) are no longer visible, the church remains open to the public throughout the summer allowing you to admire the Madonna della Neve depicted in a winter Alpe Vederna, oil by the artist Roberto Endrizzi.
Croce degli Alpini, Stoli di Morosna and finds from the Great War
...about an hour from Rifugio Vederna, following the path through the meadow, you reach the top which gives you the privilege of admiring the Primiero valley from above. Here is the Croce degli Alpini built in April 1961 (originally in larch) following the First World War and in memory of the Alpini fallen in the war. In 1984 the old wooden cross, now deteriorated by the weather, was rebuilt in metal reaching 22 meters in height and lit up at night. In addition to the cross that has stood imposingly for half a century, there are numerous testimonies of the Great War, from the trenches placed close to the top, the fort in Saltón and in Morosna the Stoli, tunnels dug into the rock by Italian troops to defend the Schenèr valley.
The “sguazi” and “El saltón” waterfall
Thanks to an underground basin, the Vederna is full of waterfalls that flow directly from the rock: the sguazi.
The most impressive is the "El saltón" waterfall which descends vertically remaining in contact with the rock. This waterfall, with a drop of about 50 meters, is one kilometer from the little church on the mountain going down the cobbled road that climbs from Imer.
