The Borders

The borders of the Ampezzo valley have often bordered on different States. Still today the borders insist on the limits of the forests and pastures where the Regolieri settled down.
Grazing and wood cutting rights in these areas caused a number of fights , struggles and endless trials with the neighbouring villages.

The first border was set with Dobbiaco in 1536, whereas over two hundred years elapsed before the borders with Auronzo and San Vito were eventually set.
In 1753, San Vito inhabitants built a wall, over two kilometres long, to divide the territories of the Regole d'Ampezzo from those of the Regole di San Vito di Cadore . The scope was to put an end to the endless fights over pasture rights
