Starting at the Parish Church in Ortisei, follow the road to S. Giacomo, until you reach a fork. Here you turn left onto the “Dialogue Walk”, which first leads to Col de Flam. Continue on an ascending forest path and, finally, turn right and walk up to a small church dedicated to S. Giacomo, patron saint of hikers and pilgrims. The way back is the same as the way there until you reach a fork near a wayside shrine. Follow the signposts for Val D’Anna and return to the starting point via the Seceda cable car valley station. S. Giacomo can also be reached by bus or by car.
