Discovering the legend of "The gana of Val de Misdé"
A long time ago in the Val de Misdé, which clambers up the huge Sella wall from Colfosco to the Boé, there lived a nymph. She was young, beautiful and loving. She would spend the summer in the valley, amidst the rocks, and only those who climbed up to the Pisciadú or the Boé could catch sight of her.
Find out the whole legend in the book: "Walking through an enchanted land" available in the tourist offices.
