The tabià were of fundamental importance for the inhabitants of the Dolomites, placed in conjunction with the house, its function was that of a barn, stable or sometimes a warehouse for the storage of animal feed, cereals, legumes, corn, construction wood and firewood, manure to fertilize the fields. The structure allowed inside to have the necessary space to house a stable for the animals. The farmer could use it as a deposit for all the equipment necessary for the work he had to carry out. Nobody built his tabià autonomously but it was the community itself that helped his fellow citizen. It was a kind of endless help because everyone helped everyone without having anything in return, indeed, what they received in return was mutual help. The structure is very simple with interlocking beams inside which the owner engraved the year of construction and his name on one.

Falcade also enjoys historical frescoes called Santi alle Finestre. These are some sacred stage works most likely from the XNUMXth century. Our ancestors were very devoted to the Saints to ask for favors or graces. If you are interested in finding out more about all these scenes, a map is available at the IAT.
