Vigo di Fassa
- Restaurants - Typical Products -
In the past, this was the political, civil and religious centre of the ancient Fassa General Community. Many of the captains and the judges of the valley used to live here. Historically, the village is situated at a crossroads where merchants from Valle di Fassa would use the Costalunga pass as a gateway to the Tyrol.
The urban settlement of Vigo di Fassa is situated on a wide balcony which dominates the valley. Its panoramic view of the whole region from the Cima Undici and Cima Dodici peaks, to the Marmolada is breathtaking. In summer, this sunny resort is a privileged departure point for hundreds of excursions and climbs in the Catinaccio group. From the village, by cable car in a matter of minutes you can reach the wonderful natural balcony named Ciampedie (1998 m). From which you can enjoy a 360° view from the Catinaccio to the Pale di San Martino. In winter Ciampedie is the heart of the skiing area where, thanks to an ultramodern snow-making system, snow is guaranteed as early as the end of November. The "Tomba" piste, is both famous and challenging. It is dedicated to the international champion from Bologna who loved training in Vigo di Fassa. Ciampedie is a magnificent natural balcony in the Dolomites, and with its comprensive Baby Park, children can be entertained all year round.
Vigo hosts the Ladin Cultural Institute, a true centre for the study and preservation of Ladin culture. The Ladin language is the official administrative language of the Fassa Ladin Community.
The hamlets of San Giovanni, Vallonga and Tamion are also part of Vigo di Fassa, with their fascinating and perfectly preserved examples of Ladin architecture. The place name "vicus" comes from Latin and means "village".
