Dolomites San Vigilio

Nature and traditions blend harmoniously in and around San Vigilio-San Martin. This superlative holiday region harbours many spectacular natural treasures, the diversity of which is unique in the world. Visitors can look forward to discovering the Fanes-Senes-Braies and Puez-Odle nature parks, which are UNESCO World Heritage sites, in addition to the Rieserferner-Ahrn nature park. The traditional Ladin culture of this region, which is particularly evident in San Vigilio in the heart of the Ladin Dolomites, is equally as compelling and unique.

Rugged peaks towering into the blue sky above, green meadows covered in a sea of colourful flowers, mountain lakes with crystal clear waters and impressive waterfalls characterise the landscape here, which is also the ideal habitat for rare animals such as golden eagles, ibex, marmots and chamois. This environment of pristine, picturesque natural landscapes is also perfect for those who want to be active during their holiday. Here there are unforgettable experiences for visitors of all ages including adrenaline rushes for the bold and relaxation for those keen on escaping the daily hustle and bustle of the cities. Culture enthusiasts will also find much to explore. The six small villages, situated in a side valley of the Val Badia valley, protect the oldest and most authentic Ladin traditions, which originated about 2,000 years ago when Roman and Rhaetian culture merged. Since that time, the Ladin language and culture have been an integral part of the lives of local people. Food is one tradition that can be experienced here by sampling typical dishes. Menu items at the local restaurants may seem strange to you at first, but we encourage you to give “Crafuns” a try as you expand your culinary horizons.
