These two towns are inevitably confronted with their past, built as they are facing Mount Toc: on 9 October 1963, after repeated but guiltily ignored warning signs, a landslide came down from the mount causing the terrifying tragedy of Vajont. This was an event whose memory- made inevitable by the view of the dam, dramatically majestic in its soaring structure- still today cannot but rouse the conscience of visitors and bestows a special quality to the sacred Via Crucis held in Erto every Good Friday, which seems more real here than anywhere else. If a visit to the old parish church in Erto (showing inside a Crucifix by A. Brustolon, 17th cent.) and the new parish church designed by G. Gresleri and S. Varnier (1971-1974) is worthwhile, the metaphysical houses-towers at Casso are a definite must, among which the church of SS. Gervasio and Protasio (18th cent.) is set.
