Val Gardena - culture and tradition

“Rujnëisa ladin?” Do you speak Ladin?

The local population is particularly devoted to promoting customs and traditions of the Ladins of the Dolomites, as well as safeguarding their cultural heritage and - above all - Ladin as a language. Val Gardena is famous throughout the world for its wood sculptures, which bear witness to a centuries-old tradition.
