Walk to "Muncion", one of those "high" settlements, where beautiful views of Fassa’s peaks can be enjoyed. In the centre of the village, you’ll find the small church of St. Anna, decorated with frescoes by Franzeleto Bernard. Return along an evocative Via Crucis.

Starting from Pera di Fassa in Strada de Ciadenac, proceed along Ruf de Soal creek, cross it and go onto Strada de Rualp, towards Muncion, walking on the Via Crucis. Once arrived in Muncion, follow the main road up to the area called "Soal". A little bit further on, you’ll find an intersection with a path leading to the left. Take it and, shortly after, you’ll cross an easy path that follows the ski slope, right beneath Vajolet chairlift. Return to Pera, getting back to Strada Ciadenac.

«The 14 votive chapels of Via Crucis, connecting the villages of Pera and Muncion, were built by the families of Muncion and Ronch in the years 1873 and 1874. On the 26th of April 1874, the Prince-Bishop of Trento, Benedetto Riccabona de Reichenfels, gave the dean-parish priest of Fassa, Francisco Valentini, the permission to bless them. The rite was carried out on the 16th of November 1875. At the end of the last century, the walls were enforced and the roofs were restored, thanks to the help of the municipality of Pozza and of the hamlet of Pera. In a second moment, the iron gratings of the capitals were renovated, too. In the year 2000, on the occasion of the celebration of St. Anna, some new oil paintings by Tullio Bernard of Pera, representing the Stations of the Cross, were donated by the population of Muncion. » Text taken from the book "Listening to Silence" (Ascoltando il silenzio) of Circolo Rovisi; Ladin Cultural Institute of Fassa.
