San Vigilio, capital district of the town of Marebbe, in the province of Bolzano, is a well-renowned touristic location: summer time is vivid and colourful, while in winter the snow shines in different tones of white: skiing, snowboarding, ski hiking, cross-country skiing, sledging and snowshoeing. The skiing resort Plan de Corones, which is part of the famous Dolomiti Superski, and the Nature Park Fanes Senes Braies are the pearls of the area and the best known attractions for tourists and lovers of nature.
It is one of the 18 towns where the Ladin language and culture still exist.
San Vigilio is a typical mountain village. Its rather small houses with their simple architecture and walls lagged with lots of wood, are grouped around the baroque church and the cute little church square, which invites you to stop off, to take a seat and to read the daily newspaper ... And all around the village, there is lots of green, of uncontaminated nature, luscious meadows and thick woods. In winter all this is covered by a splendid white mantle of snow.
