Holidays in the Dolomites: a vacation in San Vigilio di Marebbe
Marebbe is the largest municipality in the Badia Valley and lies at an altitude of about 1,200 meters above sea level. San Vigilio is the largest town in the region and extends to the rear of the Marebbe Valley. A unique cultural landscape awaits you during your holiday in the Dolomites in this part of the UNESCO World Heritage. Many members of the Ladin cultural group – who maintain their customs and traditions since centuries – live here. The language reflects the heritage of this ancient Rhaetian people. Ladin is an official language and is spoken by more than 95% of the population. The Regional Ladin Museum in the historic walls of the Ciastel de Tor in San Martino provides a comprehensive insight into the history of the Ladin people. San Vigilio di Marebbe consists of several smaller neighbourhoods and is located in the Nature Park Fanes-Sennes-Braies.
