“Wild but still civilization can be seen”

Ranked #25 of 379 things to do in Trieste
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Even if the first part of the valley was destroyed by an unregulated tree cutting operation, the further inside the walking will go the better; suggested is "Locanda da Mario" at Draga S.Elia a must for every daypacker hiking in Val Rosandra. Either for a quick stop or for a full meal it is worth a visit.

Val Rosandra is like Trieste: rugged, rough, but full of history, love and a bit of nostalgia for a past that was better than the present.
Val Rosandra is where locals with a passion for hiking would go on a Sunday; it is however, in spite of a moderate height, full of tricky places, and dangerous spots. Every summer, unfortunately, there are news of someone getting hurt in a fall in this area or even worse, dead.
Around the valley (Val is short for VALLE, valley in Italian) there are a few "Paesini" (very small towns), where the best attraction can easily result to be the local Trattoria with the homemade local red wine Terrano, the Prosciutto San Daniele and the cheeses.

Many locals will come in this area during the hot summer days, looking for a little breeze.

Val Rosandra is the Mountain spot in Trieste; if you look for some free climbing, trekking or cycling this is the spot for you.
Rock climbing started there in the '30 and hasn't stopped since.
Nice peaceful place.

Sadly, many of the trees in the lower part of the valey have been cut down and people who knew the valley before cry outrage, but for those like me who are seeing it for the first time it is still a very beautiful place. Wild goats climb on the hill side, and the falls at the head of the valley are spectacular. There are a number of paths, all well signposted, and the going is not too arduous. There are many pools that afford great bathing places and picnic sites, and for the athletic, the scree slopes and rock faces offer exciting climing opportunities (but experience is needed).
