The Predil Pass or Predel Pass is a high mountain pass on the border between Italy and Slovenia.GeographyThe pass is located in the Julian Alps, between the peaks of Mount Mangart to the north and Mount Kanin to the south. It connects Cave del Predil, part of the Italian municipality of Tarvisio in the northwest, with the municipality of Bovec in the Upper Soča (Isonzo) Valley in Slovenia.On the Italian side, the state highway No. 54 del Friuli leads from Tarvisio and the Canal Valley along the Slizza Creek to Lake Predil, where the route to the Sella Nevea Pass in the south branches off, and uphill to the Predil crest. On the Slovenian side, the road No. 203 runs downhill to Log pod Mangartom and further to Bovec. The village of Strmec na Predelu lies just beneath the border crossing.HistoryThe road was built from 1319 onwards by the citizens of Cividale in the Patriarchate of Aquileia with the consent of the Prince-Bishops of Bamberg, then the possessors of the Carinthian lands in the north. However, the importance of the trade route diminished after the Aquileia territory in the south was incorporated into the Domini di Terraferma by the Republic of Venice in 1420.

  • Memories from Napoleon) no safety place in bad condition
  • We just found this place absolutely amazing, as a Brit, where a ruin like that would not be accessible or privately owned, it was so fun to wander up and explore the place for myself, especially with that view from the top of the mountain! The photos you’ll get are just incredible. Walk round the back, and open the black gate to walk through the house for yourself, careful where you step!
