San Candido

The market place San Candido is situated in the Three Peaks Nature Park at the foot of Mt Baranci.

San Candido in Alta Pusteria stretches from 1,113 m asl up to 3,145 m asl and has a total of 3,100 inhabitants. Already in the 4th century BC, the Celts settled down in this area. Worth seeing is the S. Michele parish church, dating back to the 12th century, converted to Baroque style in 1735. Also worth seeing is the Museo della Colleggiata of San Candido, comprising also the archive and the library.

Fully dedicated to the Dolomites, however, is the museum Dolomythos, where you can discover the genesis of the pale mountains from close quarters. Obviously the Dolomites are also the crucial element as far as leisure in San Candido is concerned. Mountaineers can choose from a wide variety of destinations. The most striking mountain group near San Candido is, however, the Monte Baranci.

Snow is hardly ever missing in San Candido: for skiing we recommend you the Three Peaks ski carousel in the Sesto Dolomites, offering 93 km of well-groomed slopes. Moreover there are also 70 km of winter walking trails. Also cross-country skiers’ hearts leap for joy, as there is a network of 200 km of trails. In the evening? Have a drink with friends in one of the cosy mountain huts.

As far as events are concerned, the municipality has got much to offer, from balloon enlightening in the frame of the Dolomiti Balloon Festival to International Snow sculpture festival, there is something for every taste.
