    Despite the very narrow impact at the entrance, and the high and severe rocky walls, the Val Senales has nothing to envy to the other surrounding valleys, more or less known. Me and my friends: "Katy and Teodoro", we started our climb to reach the Juval Castle, owned by Reinhold Messner, its interior is set up as a museum; while outside there are different species of animals including the lamas, here I advise you ... not to get too close, because you could get a sprinkle of them !!!. Along the way, you will encounter different cultivations of vineyards, each of which displays its own sign, specifying the name of the wine that will be produced from that small terrace. Another feature of the place are the irrigation canals, also used as paths or trails that go into the woods. The sensation I felt during my vacation was almost magical, not only that of being immersed in a Natural Museum, but also the logistic typology that took me back in time; or rather there was an atmosphere of other times. Visit it !!!!
