The town of La Val/La Valle in Alta Badia
A place where nature and tradition can be felt everywhere
You cannot think of Alta Badia without recalling La Valle. This town, at the gates of the Fanes-Sennes-Braies Nature Park is a rare gem in terms of variety of landscapes and much more. La Val as the Ladin-speaking inhabitants call it, is one of the few towns in the Val Badia which still shows traces of the rural life once characteristic of the South Tyrol as a whole. The characteristic “les Viles” settlements, the traditional products, crafts and ancient Ladin traditions are some of the peculiarities which La Val still shows off with pride.
At an altitude of 1353 metres, the numerous residential areas of the town are spread over the gently rolling hills surrounded by enchanting places like the Sasso Croce (Sass dla Crusc) at the foot of which lie the Armentara meadows with their extraordinary variety of flowers and orchids, the Rit meadows, which alternate with forests of larch and spruce trees, the picturesque valley leading to the Ju de Sant'Antone and many other places to explore on foot.
An idyllic location where body and mind can enjoy the natural surroundings. A town that was bound to become the hiking paradise of Alta Badia thanks to land of hikers certification.
Here the pace of life slows down, giving guests the opportunity to practise sports, while feeling really free before the most beautiful mountains in the world: the Dolomites.
