San Martino di Castrozza

Description

Nestled in a large basin, protected by the mountain peaks of the Pale di San Martino and immersed in the pristine landscape of the Natural Park Paneveggio-Pale di San Martino, San Martino di Castrozza is one of the most recognized resorts in Trentino. It is the ideal place for lovers of mountaineering and hiking at high altitudes, trekking, mountain biking, rock climbing and all the sports related to snow, being located near to the ski plants of San Martino di Castrozza-Passo Rolle. From the administrative point of view, the district belongs to two different municipality administrations in the province of Trento: Siror, to the west, and Tonadico, to the east.
The origins of San Martino di Castrozza are linked to an ancient religious institution, the Hospice of Saints Martin and Julian, who hosted the pilgrims and travelers that crossed the Passo Rolle, coming from Primiero and heading down to the Val di Fiemme. It became an important tourist destination in the second half of the XIX century, at the suggestion of an alpinist Englishman John Ball, after the construction of the first alpine hotel, which replaced the old woodshed hospice. In the early years of the XX century the town was already considered an elite preferred resort by the nobility and the upper bourgeois of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.
The ski resort of San Martino di-Castrozz Passo Rolle offers 60 km of pistes, served by 23 ski lifts within a unique natural landscape. The most important area is the Alpine Carousel: from Alpe Tognola to Malga Ces, through Cima (Peak) Tognola, Valcigolera and Punta Ces, with its 45 km of slopes among the most beautiful in Trentino!
Numerous peaks of the Dolomites, in the mearby, can be admired from here, such as: the Cimon della Pala, the Vezzana, the Rosetta, the Sass Maor, the peaks Val di Roda, the Cima della Madonna, the sweeter appearance relief of the Cavallazza and the peaks in porphyry of the Colbricon and the Small Colbricon.
Finally, a visit to the ancient Church of St. Martin is suggested. Built in the XIII century, it belonged to the Priory of St. Martin and Julian and in 1912 was enlarged, assuming its present appearance, for touristic needs.
