Palla e Agai, in Ladin “Pala e Daghè”, are located at a considerable altitude: 1668 metres for the former and 1715 metres for the latter. From here the view extends from Lagazuoi to Tofane, Averau and Pore to Civetta, Sasso Bianco, Monte Migogn and Marmolada. The village of Palla is characterised by its location on a slope, hence the origin of its name: 'pala' refers to the steep terrain where it is situated.
Agai, on the other hand, enjoys the presence of less steep meadows and is therefore easier to cultivate, especially in the past when agriculture played a central role in livelihood activities.
The altitude of 1715 m, however, made life difficult for its inhabitants.
In the past, it was a strategic location during World War I combat, where the soldiers of the Italian army, engaged in the conquest of the Col di Lana, stayed.
