S. Martino

S. Martino is the main village of the Valle di Casies and is an ideal place if you seek tranquillity and a calm area

S. Martino Vallalta and S. Martino Valbassa, together with small places such as Planca di Sopra, form the chief village of the Valle di Casies. The village is located at 1,276 m a.s.l. and has got 290 inhabitants. Worth seeing is the S. Martino parish church, an original Gothic building, which has been converted to Baroque style in 1777.

Also worth mentioning is the padre J. Haspinger monument of bronze. Pater Haspinger is by the way also the most famous citizen of the municipality. In 1809 he played a decisive role in the victory of the Bergisel battle agains the French and Bavarian troups. A chapel in the village is dedicated to the padre.

Recreation in the heart of nature, crystal clear mountain air and a cultural landscape cultivated by farmers' hands make S. Martino a popular holiday destination. This is where you can find the tranquillity you need for regaining your strength for everyday life. A walk along the Talweg path, a tour to the alpine pastures of Casies such as the Malga Steger or Friedberg, this what makes you feel at ease and relaxed. In winter we recommend you a skiing day in S. Maddalena, or a great winter walk to the mountain refuges in the surroundings.
