Visitors to San Vigilio and San Martin can feel the mythical vibes in the air.
You could even say that the Fanes folk, who fled underground along with the marmots to get away from their false King, are still darting around the mountains today. This place looking back on 2,000 years of history, which is the stuff of fascinating legends and has its own unique language, is a special region. The Ladin language – a mixture of Latin and Rhaetian – is still spoken here. The Ladin people are united by their own special culture, which visitors can feel pervading every area of their daily lives.
Festivals and traditions always having their own interpretations, down-to-earth, regional dishes standing out amongst South Tyrolean cuisine thanks to their minor culinary details, and special traditional dress considered the most ornate and finest in the whole of the Alps – the Ladin people are skilled people; their wood carving is famous the world over and their hospitality is genuine. They live in a culture that welcomes with open arms and faces the world with pride in its existence and values.
