From Val di Fassa to Pale di San Martino: Cheeses of the Dolomites
Cheese is the star of the gastronomic offerings that originate at the foot of the Dolomites, a Unesco World Heritage Site, from the Rosengarten to the Pale di San Martino, through the Latemar.
It starts from Val di Fassa, where the Cooperative dairy is a symbol of the Ladin tradition, based on passion, hence the name: Cher de Fasha - Fassa’s Heart. Flavours meet culture in the Ladin Museum, which has its headquarters in the town of Vigo, where every summer original food and wine events take place. Ladin products and recipes can be enjoyed all year round in shops, restaurants and mountain huts, from Canazei to Moena, up to the San Pellegrino Pass. From here, we continue to Predazzo, the cradle of the Puzzone di Moena cheese whose secrets are revealed by an interesting guided tour of the dairy. Proceeding to Rolle Pass, you find yourself in the heart of the Paneveggio - Pale di San Martino Natural Park but not without having made a detour to Val Venegia.
When you reach the pass, you can take a tour of the alpine pastures and dairy farms, tasting and purchasing dairy products that are born at the foot of the Pale di San Martino. Finally, we head down to San Martino di Castrozza for the ‘tasty’ ski circuit called “Around the Mountain Dairies”, ideal for both children and grown ups.
