In Ladin "Andrac"
This densely populated hamlet is located 10 kilometres from Arabba, on the road leading to the Falzarego Pass. Andraz is also the name of the stream below the hamlet. At its entrance, there is a church dedicated to the Holy Trinity, which has a bell tower with a reddish onion roof. It also contains an altar from the old chapel of the nearby Andraz Castle. Also in the vicinity of Andraz are the hamlets of Foram, Franza, Costa d'Andraz and the unique hamlet of Cernadoi, which is slightly higher up than the hamlet of Andraz. In Andraz there is a sawmill near the Rù da Porta and a water mill that is still working for those who wish to have their wheat ground. The mill dates back to the second half of the 18th century. A few hundred years ago, the town of Andraz was also called "The village of vipers", due to the large number of poisonous snakes.
In the vicinity of Andraz, there is also the village of Castello, which takes its name from the medieval building, Andraz Castle. Initially a small building on a rocky outcrop, it was extended over the years until it reached its peak in the 16th century. After the 18th century it was left to decay until the bombing of World War I, which marked its end. With the conclusion of the 20th century, the most significant restoration work to preserve the historical asset began, until the last restoration was carried out in 2011, bringing it to its current splendour. Andraz Castle can now be visited, retracing its residential and architectural history over the past centuries.
