To visit in Val Badia
Culture, history and traditions of Val Badia
Val Badia is inhabited by Ladins, a population that was able to preserve its language, culture and identity to this day, thanks to the particular morphology of the valley. A culture that has its roots in rural life, craftsmanship and a strong bond between man and environment. The Ladin’s mother tongue is Ladino (Retro Romanic), but they also speak fluent German and Italian, along with some English.
The typical Ladin architecture, the forms of common organisation represented by the Viles, the specialties of fine dining and Ladin traditions punctuated by the rhythm of the seasons, are some examples of the distinctive traces that history left behind in Val Badia.
