Asiago - On the Plateau, through nature and specialities

History has left clear signs in the mountains of the Asiago Plateau. Starting from the origins of its inhabitants, who are tough to descended from the ancient Cimbri of northern origin. The Cimbrian language, now abandoned, is still present in places’ names and surnames of many families. Rituals and ancient customs, along with the ancient legends of gnomes, fairies and other creatures of the woods, charm the Sette Comuni’s visitors.
The Great War, which devastated Asiago’s countries and landscapes, it’s a far away painful experience, but still perfectly tangible through the remains of thousands of trenches and fortifications and the proofs collected in museums. The archaeological sites help to add further charm to the discovery of this unique land.
