Fiera di Primiero

Between 700 and 1000 metres above sea level, the Vanoi area keeps the charm of the most authentic and unspoilt mountain landscapes, marked by large woods, meadows, lakes, torrents and small mountain villages. It is linked to the Primiero valley with a convenient tunnel or a panoramic road leading up to Passo Gobbera. The valley has an area of 125 sq.km and has about 1600 inhabitants.

The town and its two hamlets of Pieve and Ormanico enjoy a beautiful panoramic view over the surrounding mountains.
