Did you know that the residents of Alta Badia are called the “Ladin” in honour of their language? As the oldest inhabitants of the Alpine region, the Ladin differ from the Italians and Austrians primarily in terms of their cultural roots. Known for putting their heart and soul into Ladin traditions of mountain farming and handicrafts, the people ensure that these typical customs can be handed down to future generations by turning them into a key part of everyday life.
Tip: holidaymakers wanting to find out more about the Ladin people should head for the “Ciastel de Tor” museum.
