ABOUT THE VILLAGE OF CANAZEI
Located in the Dolomites, Val di Fassa lies in the north-east part of Trentino, Northern, Italy. It is surrounded by the most spectacular and famous Dolomite peaks, which ice and wind have modeled into the steep walls, towering spires and daring pinnacles typical of these mountains. The attractions are further enhanced at sunset when the sun’s rays set the rocks alight and turn them to a warm red color. This valley is also the famous for the ski region in the Dolomiti Super-ski and the 10 villages that make up the charm of the Ladin culture, cuisine and language. The Village of Canazei is just under 2000 inhabitants in the Ladin-speaking part of the Dolomites area of Italy.
