The ladin world. A land of authentic culture and traditions to be discovered



Join the Ladin world

The Alta Badia region, in the Dolomites, boasts authentic culture and traditions that the inhabitants are proud to pass on. Land of thousand year old stories, like the legends of the imaginary Kingdom of the Fanes; an area where an ancient language is spoken, Ladin, still used today in schools and in everyday life; an environment of extraordinary natural charm with the unparalleled heritage of the Dolomites, UNESCO World Heritage Site.

A region that has been enviously able to preserve its own authenticity, which has become a great richness even for the new generations as well. A territory with a great heart, with deep roots of hospitality.
A region that welcomes and enchants all those who visit it.

Welcome in Val Badia!


“For centuries, these beautiful mountains have remained a world of fairy tales, because you could only get there through impervious mountain trails and inhospitable valleys, where the people of the city have never set foot” . Theodor Christomannos
