This typically alpine village rises at the confluence of the Valsorda creek on an alluvial fan just in front of the rocky pyramids of the Cauriol Mountain. A nice paved road continues up from here to the Refavaie Refuge (1110 meters).
The village is divided into two districts by the Valsorda stream: Caoria di fuori (outer) and Caoria di dentro (inner). The church of "San Giovanni Nepomuceno" (St John) is an example of modern architecture integrated in an alpine landscape.
For those keen on mountain walking, Caoria offers the possibility of many interesting excursions on the massif of different origin and nature. The granite massif of Cima d’Asta and the porphyry chain of the Lagorai are not far away from Caoria.
