A rich and varied heritage

Culture

Once you arrive in Alta Badia, you find yourself in the authentic Ladin world, with its unique culture, its own language (the third official language of South Tyrol) and its carefully preserved ancient traditions. The rural past is strongly perceived on centuries-old farms and in original farming settlements, called "viles", located in the surroundings of Badia, within a short walking distance from the Runcac Hotel. Browsing the stalls of a handicraft market you will certainly come across such traditional crafts as wood carving and artistic weaving, handed on from generation to generation. And if you want to learn more, just visit the Ladin museum Ciastel de Tor in San Martino in Badia, offering an interesting immersion into the Ladin history, culture and identity. Besides, various cultural events, such as processions, feasts and festivals can also raise the curtain on the magical Ladin world with its customs, traditions and, of course, with the rustic and appetizing flavours of the typical Ladin cuisine.
