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 contact the service managers directly for updated information on how to gain access.

They have beautiful colours, unusual shapes and sparkle in the sun like diamonds. The mountains of Val di Fassa hide a mine of minerals and fossils. It was the hunt for minerals in the volcanic areas of the Dolomites by Tone Rizzi Poldin that lead to the birth of the Monzoni Mineralogic Museum that offers the possibility to admire quartz, agate, monzonite, analcite of various colours, fassaites, cornelian and many more. The exhibition is in a spectacular renovated hay barn. The museum is found in Strada de Pilat in San Giovanni di Fassa and is open in summer, from end of June to beginning September, every day.
