The San Boldo Pass in Giro d’Italia

The hairpins and tunnels of Passo San Boldo have etched their mark in Giro d’Italia history. First conquering its slopes in 1966 on Stage 21, the “Road of 100 Days” instantly became a crucible where cycling legends were forged. Pietro Scandelli won the stage that year, while the iconic Gianni Motta donned the coveted Maglia Rosa. Over five decades later, the 2019 Giro returned to San Boldo’s serpentine roads on Stage 19, where Colombian climber Esteban Chaves claimed a heroic stage win after battling the 18 tornanti from Tovena earlier on the road. With each edition it graces, this wartime engineering marvel continues to challenge the world’s best cyclists, its punishing ramps and rock-hewn tunnels demanding every ounce of their skill and determination to conquer the legendary San Boldo Pass.

The Characteristics Of Passo San Boldo

Passo San Boldo is a small mountain pass located in the Veneto region of northern Italy, connecting the towns of Trichiana and Tovena over a distance of around 17 km (11 miles). Here are some key facts about this pass:

  • Elevation: The pass lies at an elevation of 706 m above sea level, at the southern edge of the Alps.
  • Road: A single-lane road with 18 hairpin turns, 5 tunnels blasted into the rock, and 6 bridges.
  • Construction: The current paved road was built in just 3 months (February to June 1918) by the Austro-Hungarian army during World War I to supply the Piave front. Around 1,400 workers including prisoners of war, women, and children constructed it, earning it the nickname “Road of 100 Days”.
  • Restrictions: There is a speed limit of 30 km/h and a height limit of 3.2 m due to the narrow tunnels where buses have gotten stuck.
  • Gradient: Despite the extreme topography, the maximum gradient was limited to 12% to allow transport of heavy artillery and supplies, with some ramps reaching 37% gradient.

Passo San Boldo is a historic and scenic mountain pass in northern Italy with an incredibly winding road built rapidly during WWI, featuring tunnels, hairpins and bridges carved into the mountainside.

Passo San Boldo has a fascinating history tied to World War I. Here are the key details about its construction and origins:

Passo San Boldo And Its World War I Construction

  • The current paved road over Passo San Boldo was built in just 3 months from February to June 1918 by the Austro-Hungarian army. This incredibly rapid construction earned it the nickname the “Road of 100 Days”.
  • Around 1,400 workers including prisoners of war, women, children, and elderly locals were pressed into service to build this strategically important supply route to the Piave front.
  • Despite the extreme mountainous topography, the maximum gradient was limited to 12% to allow transport of heavy artillery and military supplies, with some ramps reaching 37% gradient.
  • The road features 18 hairpin turns, 5-6 tunnels blasted through rock, and 6 bridges as engineering feats to overcome the difficult terrain.

Passo San Boldo Origins and Name

  • Prior to WWI, only a steep footpath existed over the pass since the 19th century, but plans to build a road had stalled.
  • The pass is named after San Boldo (or Sant’Ubaldo), a Spanish hermit who lived as a recluse in these mountains and later became a saint. It was formerly known as Passo Sant’Ubaldo.

Passo San Boldo’s current winding mountain road was an impressive engineering accomplishment constructed in record time during WWI by Austro-Hungarian forces to supply the front lines, giving it a rich military history.
