Vigo di Fassa
From its privileged position you can reach the Catinaccio chain
Located in a sunny position, Vigo overlooks Catinaccio and the Pale di San Martino.
Perched on a large terraced zone overlooking the valley, Vigo di Fassa boasts a view that takes in the entire area from the Cima Undici and the Cima Dodici peaks all the way to the Marmolada glacier.
This sunny town provides for excellent places to have your base station for excursions and climbs to the Catinaccio group. In just a couple of minutes a modern cable car will take you to Ciampedìe terracce (1,998 m), where you can look out over a panorama of rare beauty.
In winter Vigo is a welcoming ski tourist centre, thanks to the cable car that leaves the village and takes skiers to the 16 km slopes of the Catinaccio ski area. Thanks to state-of-the-art artificial snow-system, snow is guaranteed from the beginning of December. Here runs of champions can be found and areas for families and children with the Kinderpark Laurin at Ciampedìe (1,998 m): a terrace naturally sun kissed that offers an exceptional view over the Fassa Dolomites.
Vigo hosts the Ladin de Fascia Museum and the Ladin Cultural Institute, which promotes the study and care of the Ladin culture.
Though destroyed by a fire in 1921, the town still features numerous traces of its former rural and handicrafting culture. On the hill at the edge of the wood, the sacred path of the Santa Giuliana Church guards over Vigo di Fassa.
