Vigo di Fassa

Description

Located at the foot of the Rosengarten massif, a large terrace that dominates the Val di Fassa, along the right bank of the Avisio, Vigo di Fassa (Vich in Ladino) is a town in the province of Trento, privileged departure point of a modern cable car that connects with the basin of Ciampedine, a spectacular natural balcony, which offers superb views of the Dolomites.
Although the first documented traces date back to medieval times, when Vigo di Fassa was the main religious and administrative center of the valley, archaeological finds attest the presence of settlements that date back to the Paleolithic Ages. Until 1860, the local economy was devoted only to animal breeding and agriculture, then with the arrival of the first tourists from Austria, attracted by the beautiful landscape and mild climate, it became a preferred resort. After the First World War it was annexed to the Kingdom of Italy
In Summer, Vigo is the ideal departure point for excursions to the mountain group of the Rosengarten or healthy hikes or horseback rides along the mountain paths, while in Winter, visitors must take advantage of ski runs and modern equipment provided by the Rosengarten ski area.

Sites of Interest:
- the Church of Santa Juliana, one of the oldest in the Val di Fassa, documented since 1237, within which are preserved the splendid frescoes of the apse and a wooden-carved altar of 1517, realized by the artist George Artz.
- the XIV century, Gothic style, rural Church of St. John, which is flanked by a tall spire-topped Bell Tower. Inside are housed several frescoes of the Tyrolean Art School;
- the small Chapel of St. Maurice;
- the Ladin Museum of Val di Fassa, in which are analyzed the various aspects of Ladin civilization, from the historical to the institutional, from the religious to the customs and traditions;
- the Monzoni Mineralogical Museum, with over 200 varieties of minerals, probably one of the most complete of the Dolomites;
- the Austria-Hungarian Cemetery.
