The Via Crucis in Selva di Gardena starts in the small locality of Daunei and is a very popular destination in every season of the year. Moreover, it is one of the oldest walking trails in the Val Gardena and distinguishes itself mainly through its extraordinary landscape.
From Daunei, the trail leads to the San Silvestro chapel in the Vallunga Valley, passing under the impressive peaks of the Stevia mountain range. The Via Crucis has 15 Stations of the Cross, depicting the final hours of Jesus Christ. Interestingly, those stations were carved from tree trunks by local artists in the year 1983.
