A cradle of traditions in the heart of Val di Fiemme
A short stroll through the historic city centre amongst churches, capitals, sun-dials, frescoes and freshly baked bread. Tesero is an important tourist centre both in winter, for its popular Centro del Fondo, home of international cross-country competitions, and in summer, particularly for families.
The town of Tesero, 1,000m above sea level, is renowned for its ancient views and for its artistic hand-crafted goods, the furniture manufacturers and the production of sound boards for pianos and violins. At Christmas one-hundred cribs appear in the alleys, in the courtyards, in windows and stables, for the major event Tesero e i suoi Presepi (Tesero and its cribs). Each summer the event Le corte de Tiezer commemorates ancient practices and traditions.
The cross-country centre at Lago di Tesero is home to the Nordic skiing World Championships (1991, 2003, 2013). The lift installations of the Pampeago hamlet will take you to the ski carousel of the Ski Center Latemar in winter and in summer they’ll take you to the art park RespirArt and to the themed trails of Latemarium. On bike you can explore the Dolomites cycling track , the mountain bike trails and the “pink climb” of the Giro d’Italia. In Stava the indoor rock climbing is also very popular.
