San Giacomo, near Ortisei

The Dolomites have a few choice chapels positioned neatly along mountain tops or on mountain views. Built to inspire.


The San Giacomo Chapel is about 1-2 hour's walk from Ortisei through some nice wooded hill roads. Only thing to watch out for - it's uphill all the way! I was muttering to myself the entire way up, "This better be worth it..."


It's one of the oldest churches in the Val Gardena, also contains a preserved document mentioning San Giacomo as a pilgrimage site in 1283.
