Val Gardena, a paradise of nature and art
Culture, art and a love for tradition
The spectacular alpine beauty of Val Gardena is crowned by the impressive mountain chain known as the Dolomites of Gardena. The green surrounding woodland dominated by the heights of Monti Pallidi gently protect three provincial districts, Ortisei, Santa Cristina and Selva . Each district holds strong the Latin culture, the valley is officially trilingual with the inhabitants speaking Latin, Italian and German as well as the costumes and traditions with the most important tradition being the sculpture of wood which can be easily witnessed in the many craft shops.
