Lozzo di Cadore is surrounded by woods and the Dolomites is a small town that developed by exploiting the waterways of the area.
La Roggia dei Mulini
The Roggia dei Mulini is a path of industrial archeology of the whole Cadore area.
The route runs alongside the Rio Rin in Lozzo di Cadore and represents various artisanal economic realities based on the exploitation of water resources: mills, sawmills, forges, wool mills.
Historically interesting is the workshop for the production of electricity, one of the first.
In the town you can visit the ancient Social Dairy of Lozzo di Cadore which has become “The Dairy Museum” , which keeps alive the historical heritage linked to crafts, which fell into disuse in the 20th century.
The dairy collected the milk to turn it into butter, cheese and ricotta which were used for the sustenance of the natives.
In the museum you can learn how the transformation of milk into everyday foods took place and still happens.
