- Restaurants - Typical Products -
Campitello di Fassa was the first tourist-mountaineering centre in the Val di Fassa and is a departure point for nearly all the explorations and conquests of the neighbouring Dolomite groups. Today's Campitello di Fassa lies on the "Strada delle Dolomiti" road and is dominated by the imposing mass of Sassolungo and by Col Rodella (2404 m), from where you can admire one of the most picturesque landscapes in the Dolomite range. The summit can be reached directly from the village with a fast, high capacity cable-car.
In winter, having reached the summit, you can choose from the many skiing opportunities offered by the Col Rodella/Belvedere ski circuit. The circuit is served by state of the art ski-lifts as well as a modern system of programmed snow, guaranteeing maximum ski-run availability right from the start of the season. From Col Rodella you can also reach the ski-lifts and ski-runs which, from Passo Sella in the direction of Val Gardena, join the renowned Sellaronda circuit, also accessible from the Canazei ski-runs.
In summer Col Rodella is the departure point for a myriad of walks and excursions leading towards the Sassolungo group, Sasso Piatto and the Altopiano dello Sciliar.
The parish church, traces of which can be found in a document dating back to 1245, is dedicated to St. Philip and St. James and is one of the oldest in the valley. It lies in an elevated position at the foot of Dosso di Pian. Pian is a typical Ladin, agricultural and sheep-rearing settlement. Campitello di Fassa also lies at the intersection of the Val Duron, dug out by the Duron river, and the side valley whose floor separates the Catinaccio and Sassolungo groups. Since earliest times the area has been used for Alpine grazing and haymaking in the district of Campitello di Fassa.
It is also known as the "Strada del pane e del vino" ("Bread and wine road") because merchants and shepherds used to pass here on their journeys from the Alpe di Siusi towards the Giogo di Fassa. The Ladin name "Cianpedel" is a diminutive deriving from the Latin word "campus" meaning field or glade.
