Corvara in Badia - Colfosco

Description

Corvara in Badia (Corvara in German and Ladino) is the largest town in the Val Badia, in the province of Tyrol, located about 1568 meters above sea level, in the heart of the Dolomites. It is considered the cradle of tourism in Val Badia, as since the XVIII century the local youth began to climb the nearby peaks and lead to these summits the first tourists, attracted by a quiet and unspoiled nature. The construction of the sledge cable to Col Alto in 1938, replaced in 1947 by the first chair lift of Italy, the beautiful snow-covered slopes, the picturesque mountain trails, the wonderful view of the Marmolada and the hospitality of the locals, make of Corvara a favorite destination for lovers of the mountain, in Winter as in Summer Seasons.
Colfosco (Kolfuschg in German, Ladino Calfosch) is a district of the municipality of Corvara in Badia, located at the foot of the Sella massif, the ideal starting point for mountains excursions.
The district's name derives from "Corvus" (crow), to with the addition of the suffix"-aria" means "place whch belongs to the crows", attested since 1296.
Corvara belonged to the fief of Marebbe-Val Badia and was under the jurisdiction of the Convent of Castel Badia. While the colonization of Colfosco was founded by Laion, the first inhabitants of Corvara came from the territory of San Lorenzo.
