Alagna

The Otro Valley and its hamlets

By: alagna.it

Otro-Dorf hamlet

Val d'Otro, where history, nature and houses bear real witness to the Walser colonisation, is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful places in the Alagna area.

It is not a place-museum but a living place, still very much alive today, in which the vegetable gardens with their excellent crops, the shepherds and the Walser architecture, preserved intact, re-propose the past whose traces can still be felt, crystallised in the continuity of an oasis, which has been able to cross time.

Alpe Otro appears on documents of donations and exchanges as far back as 1025, but the birth of the hamlets by Walser settlers from Gressoney dates back to the early 14th century.

Today, 6 small hamlets can be visited: Follu, Scarpia, Ciucche, Weng, Felljerc, and Dorf, with their monolithic fountains, bread ovens, stables, Walser houses and chapels, elements of a self-sufficient economy that has been able to maintain them over time and renew their use.
