Stablét Visitors Centre

Museums and castles

Description

The Stablét Visitors' Centre offers a fascinating look at the world of marmots (large rodents commonly seen in high-altitude alpine pastures), their lifecycle and their behaviour. The centre is part of an old mountain hut restoration project. Simple info-graphic panels take the visitor on a fascinating tour illustrating the characteristics of marmots and their behavioural patterns. Images portraying winter hibernation, the spring 'awakening, how they organize their family units and daily «work» routines give excellent insights into the lives of these loveable creatures. A large model reproduces a typical marmot den, the 'home' where they take refuge.

For more in-depth information, the centre also has a small audio-visual learning room. A further info panel illustrates the Scalinata dei Larici Monumentali, a beautiful trail about an hour's walk from the Centre: surrounded by huge larch trees, it takes walkers through centuries of natural history. Alongside the actual Visitors' Centre stands a structure used as a gathering point for hikers, school trips and the arrival point for winter tours organized within the Park.

The Visitors' Centre stands at the foot of the spectacular Saènt Waterfalls in Prà di Saènt (also known as «Marmot Meadow»), close to the Scalinata dei Larici Monumentali.
