San Vigilio is a touristic centre with about 1,500 inhabitants situated in the middle of the Dolomites at 1,201 m above sea level. The idyllic village of San Vigilio is very popular with lovers of nature, culture and sport activities. In San Vigilio we speak Ladin. Ladin is a language developed from the mixing of Roman language with Rhaetic culture and survived in the Dolomites throughout the centuries up to modern times. “Bengnüs” in Ladin means welcome and “Ciasa” house/home. The Ladin customs and traditions will surround you during your stay, as well as the Ladin cuisine, made of genuine dishes and characterised by authentic flavours.
