Pellegrino and at times it can be busy, but it is the best route to reach the heart of the Italian Dolomites.

In the middle ages the Passo S. Pellegrino was known as Monte Alloch and part of the summer migration trail from the Brenner Pass. In the 1300's the Monks from the order of Saint Pellegrino built a hospice to care for those injured or ill from making the passage and today the pass gets it name from this order of Monks.  Many of the a joining roads were built during the First World War, Passo Valles is a great example.  There are several great mountain bike trails leading through and from the pass that lets you explore some to the old battle positions of the war.
