ATTENTION: The opening of cultural and tourist sites, access to them, to public transport and to the services described in these pages is governed by the containment measures put in place by the government authorities and the Autonomous Province of Trento to deal with the COVID-19 health emergency. The rules may vary over time and provide for the application of different security measures — from closure, to social distancing, to the mandatory use of personal protective equipment such as gloves and masks. We therefore ask you to consult the section Travelling safely on this website and to contact the managers directly for updated information on how to gain access.
Take a seat beside the fire and listen to some tales from the tradition of the Ladin Feasts: San Nicolò accompanied by the angels and by the feared "Krampus" (Ladin devils), the birth of the Christ Child, the arrival of the Three Kings, Carnival and its traditional wooden masks, the preparation of strudel and "zelten" and the rite of the "bombona" (when on January 1 the godfather gives a sweet focaccia bread as a present to his godchildren). And then, the classic legends of the local tradition, such as "King Laurin", "Conturina", "Barbolina", "Ondina" and "Ciambolfin".
