The Friulian Dolomites Park

With its visitor centre, guesthouse and aviary for birds of prey, Andreis is one of the sites of the Friulian Dolomites Park. This area, in 2009, played a fundamental role in the recognition of the entire Dolomites site as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, thanks to the contribution of wilderness present in Friuli even at low altitudes. The Visitor Centre was created by restructuring the old social dairy and includes a guesthouse, a permanent exhibition dedicated to birds and a comic strip archive.

Not far away, on the edge of the village, in a quiet and peaceful place, are the aviaries of the Regional Reference Centre for the Recovery of Wounded Avifauna. They mainly house birds of prey in need of care, to be released into the wild when possible. Some specimens, unfortunately, have suffered injuries that make it impossible to release them back into the wild. Others, on the other hand, can return to their wild life once they have recovered. The moment of release is an occasion that involves groups and schoolchildren and is of great educational value.

Montereale Valcellina

The old Valcellina road

Until 1906, the Valcellina, with the municipalities of Andreis, Barcis, Claut, Cimolais and Erto, which in the 19th century had a total of ten thousand inhabitants, remained isolated due to the absence of roads.

The area in which Montereale Valcellina stands has been inhabited for at least three thousand years: the oldest evidence of human settlements dates back to the 14th century B.C., the so-called Bronze Age. Some swords that have re-emerged from the gravel of the Cellina date back to this period, perhaps of a votive nature, linked to the cult of the torrent or of a deity linked to water.
