Together with the stump in front is the monument built in 1912 in honor of Theodor Christomannos (1854-1911), a Viennese politician and keen mountaineer, rightly considered the father of tourism in Tyrol then in the Dolomites, which he developed promoting the construction of roads, hotels and infrastructure. His, among other things, the initiative of the Dolomites Road, which made these wonderful mountains and their territories really accessible. The eagle, visible from a distance, is the unmistakable reference point in the ascent to the Rif. Roda de Vael and the crossroads on the southern side of Catinaccio.

Nice excursion for nature lovers but who do not want to make too much effort. The bronze monument awaits you for a beautiful photo.
A beautiful view from up there. However there is simply a place to sit and the monument itself which is facing towards the sun all day long, which makes shooting good photos hard
The walk from the Paolina refuge to the Vael hut is a classic not to be missed. Breathtaking views, relaxing walk under majestic walls and unique in the world. The two shelters offer great service. Who has good legs can go up to the Pauline on foot and maybe go down to Vigo, then return to the starting point in Corriera. Absolutely advisable.
