Moena, also known as the "Fairy of the Dolomites"
of Trentino, is a beautiful mountain village based at 1.180 m, the most populated of the Fassa Valley. The Village is situated in a sunny area on the border between Fassa and Fiemme Valley.
It is surrounded by the Amazing Peaks of the Dolomites mountains Sassolungo, Monzoni
, Latemar and Catinaccio
, with it's fantastic surface which gets an awesome pink color (Enrosadira) during the sunrise and the sunset.
The Fairy of the Dolomites
is the ideal place to spend summer and winter holidays
, whatever is the guest age. The village offers open-air fun activities, relax, and hiking. With a great slopes service of the Trevalli Skiing Area, the Fassa and Fiemme Valley, is a strategic point for winter sports with ski-tracks and amazing views, but even for summer mountain hikes.
Thanks to the new beltway, starting from last summer, Moena
has a controlled traffic zone
which permits a quiet and car-free old town centre, in particular near the two main squares. It is a pleasure to walk through the several shops, where is possible to find the typical workshops based on the wood manufacturing, like "La Bottega dell' Artigianato"
placed in the main square. It is also possible to find a lot of typical food specialties shops, with cheeses and salami made in the Moena area (like our special Puzzone cheese
or Ladin Speck
), some beautiful clothing boutique and sportswear shops.
