San Cassiano in Alta Badia
A village to fall in love with at the heart of the Dolomites
The village of San Cassiano is located at the border to Alta Badia in a valley adjacent to Val Badia and at the foot of the La Varella and Conturines mountains. The scenic nature is of rare beauty even when compared with other areas and villages amidst the Dolomites. From the Fanes-Sennes-Braies nature park to Valparola Pass, from the meadows at Störes e Pralongià to the panoramic walks above the village, no matter what season of the year you visit San Cassiano, its natural beauty will leave you feeling well impressed.
The village centre is the only one in Alta Badia with a pedestrian zone where you can stroll and browse amongst all sorts of shops, restaurants and bars. Here you'll also find the Ursus Ladinicus Museum which is dedicated to the bear caves located on the slopes of Conturines mountain. In both summer and winter you can make use of the Piz Sorega cable cars from the village which will take you to plateaus covered in forests and meadows within a short space of time and where you can admire the beauty of the Sas dla Crusc mountain.
Needless to say, San Cassiano, at 1,537m a.s.l. is a real paradise for those who love all things sporty: Skiing, excursions, cycling, mountain biking, climbing, all of these activities can be pursued in this village in South Tyrol.
