The “Calà del Sasso”, with its 4.444 stone steps.

Built in 1388 by the municipality of Asiago to evade the heavy taxes imposed by the neighbouring municipalities for the communications with the plain, it is a path consisting of 4444 steps, which connects the town of Valstagna with the Sasso di Asiago hamlet, with a vertical drop of 744 metres. It is the longest stair in Italy, ant it is flanked by a ditch in limestone used at that time to transport the timber from the Plateau to the Brenta valley.
