Holidays in S. Cristina – A fabulous vacation at 1,400 meters above sea level
Santa Cristina in Val Gardena lies at an altitude of 1,428 meters above sea level. S. Cristina and the other villages in Val Gardena belong to the centre of Ladin culture in South Tyrol. About 90 percent of the population speak Ladin. The parish of S. Cristina stretches from Ponte Gardena up to the Sella Group.

Archaeological finds at the “Plan de Frea” prove that already 6000 BC, hunters and gatherers were living in the area. In the idyllic small town there is the Sporthotel Monte Pana, which is an excellent starting point for exciting activities in the Dolomites.
