Dolomites San Vigilio

In and around San Vigilio-San Martin nature and tradition are harmoniously intertwined. The holiday region contains countless, unique spectacular natural treasures: The natural parks Fanes-Sennes-Prags, Puez-Geisler and Rieserferner-Ahrn are all part of the UNESCO world heritage. The traditional ladin culture of this region is every bit as unique and is especially prevalent in San Vigilio in the heart of the Ladin Dolomites.

Jagged peaks which rise up in the blue sky, green meadows full of countless colourful flowers, mountain lakes with crystal-clear water, breath-taking waterfalls … This is the ideal habitat for rare species such as the golden eagle, ibex, marmot and chamois. Perfect for sports enthusiasts who wish to spend an active holiday amidst untouched, scenic landscapes.

This means unforgettable experiences for all ages, adrenaline kicks for the venturesome and relaxation for those wishing to escape the hustle and bustle of daily city life. There is plenty for the culturally interested to find here too. The six small villages are guardians of the oldest and most original Ladin traditions which developed around 2000 years ago with the intermixing of the Rhaetian-Roman culture. Since then the Ladin language and culture have become an essential part of life for the local population.

Old traditions are carried on e.g. in the form of typical dishes. The menu choices at the local restaurants may appear a little strange at first – but it’s worth trying something new like ordering a portion of Crafuns or another Ladin speciality.
