Val Gardena

Val Gardena is in Alto Adige region, the Alps sunny side. The valley is about 25km long and is north-west of the Dolomites.

The real Val Gardena starts after 10km in Pontives, here they speak Ladin, a language that is 2000 years old, which was born from the fusion of the Celtic and Roman cultures.

Val Gardena is worldwide known both for its flora and mountain scenery and also for its wood sculpture. This tradition was born in 1600 as farmers’ winter hobby and has developed later on, at around the end of the XIX century, in an economically important sector of the valley. They produced sculptures and toys too, that merchants used to sell all over the world. Today the woodworking business is covered on one hand by a modern industry and on the other hand by artisans creating unique pieces.

As all the Ladin valleys also Val Gardena is full of tradition and costumes that are alive still today. Val Gardena traditional costume is very original, these are very sought-after costumes and different one from the other, depending on the social classes they are addressed to and are among the most beautiful costumes of the whole alpine arch, where still today they are very proudly worn.
