Badia, the village at the feet of Sas dla Crusc
Badia, pearl of the Dolomites, stands at the feet of Sas dla Crusc (Sasso Croce), where the sanctuary of La Crusc lies. The Sanctuary of La Crusc is a traditional destination for pilgrims from all the villages in Val Badia. In winter, the La Crusc chairlift allows you to ski in these enchanted places and in summer to walk over Armentara flowery meadows.
The village of Badia is surrounded by two large natural parks: the natural park of Fanes-Sennes-Braies and the natural park of Puez-Odle. Both parks are part of the Unesco World Natural Heritage Site. For lovers of nature, fauna, flora and geology, this is a paradise just waiting to be discovered.
A short distance away from Garni Flurida in Badia lie the other villages, which form the tourist circuit of Alta Badia:
La Val, a well-preserved village, which is a much loved destination for hikers.
La Villa, famous for the World Cup skiing competition on the mythical Gran Risa.
San Cassiano, a village situated on the slopes of La Varella, which offers many opportunities for sports, such as rock climbing, cross country skiing or sledging.
Corvara, the most touristically developed and most well-known of the villages. The town where the Marathon of the Dolomites cycling event crosses the finishing line.
Colfosco, famous for its delightful little church, dedicated to San Vigilio.
