Ciastel de Tor

Ciastel de Tor above San Martino in Badia is the emblem of the Ladin-speaking area and also hosts the Museum Ladin.

The history of this castle, located above San Martino in Badia, dates back to the 12th century and once upon a time represented the centre of the court "Thurn an der Gader". For this reason it has always been a significant building for the Ladin-speaking people living in the Dolomites.

As far as the position of the castle is concerned it is presumed that it was built in the major axes of a Late Roman and early Medieval settlement named "Quadra". What is particularly striking is the residential tower.

Still today Castel Thurn is the cultural centre of the Val Badia. From 1996 it has been owned by the province of South Tyrol. In 2001 an exhibition was inaugurated in the castle that presents interesting information about language, culture and history of more than 30,000 Ladins living in the Dolomites. It is by the way the most ancient language group of South Tyrol. Alone thanks to its past, the castle is a perfect place for this Museum Ladin "Ciastel de Tor".

Currently, access may be subject to certain restrictions.
