Visitors to San Vigilio can feel the mythical vibes in the air.
You could even say that the Fanes folk, who fled underground along with the marmots to get away from their false King, are still darting around the mountains today. This place looking back on 2,000 years of history, which is the stuff of fascinating legends and has its own unique language, is a special region. The Ladin language – a mixture of Latin and Rhaetian – is still spoken here. The Ladin people are united by their own special culture, which visitors can feel pervading every area of their daily lives..
Autumn. There is already snow again on the summits. The light is slightly different. Mild, not as bright as in summer. The days are shorter. At night, we‘re discovering temperatures below freezing every now and then. The highest larches are already yellow, and after every cold night the gold strip sinks further down the valley. Once upon a while I have to think back to the days I feel the most alive.
