Description

In the Val Cuschina is the lime kiln. Contrary to what one might think, this name does not derive from the Romanesque word "cuschina" = "cuisine", but rather from the Latin CODEX, rome. "cuscha" = "tree trunk". Val Cuschina therefore means something like "Valley of the Tree Trunks". Because of the very steep southern slopes, the valley is a notorious avalanche valley in snowy winters.

Also a very special place in the Val Cuschina is "l'Aua Benedida" = the blessed water. Why the place is so called is described in an old legend: Many hundreds of years ago, the pastor of Brigels once visited the pastor of Schlans. On the way back at night, he strayed from the path and wandered aimlessly in the dark forest. Only when he finally desperately reached the said stream, blessed the water and crossed himself with it, he found his way again and arrived safely in Brigels. According to local custom, you should always drink some of the water as you walk by. This brings luck.

Just below the Aua Benedida is the old lime kiln (rom. ==References==* Official website In this kiln, the coveted lime was burned from the calcareous tuff that is often found here.
The lime kiln of the Val Cuschina was meticulously restored by Stiafen Cahannes from Dardin.
