A few kilometres from the Queen of the Dolomites
San Vito di Cadore stands at an altitude of about 1,000 metres in the province of Belluno, surrounded by two UNESCO World Heritage giants: Monte Antelao, behind, and Monte Pelmo, in front. It is the perfect mountain village, both in winter, with its Ski Area slopes and the NeveSole Park, and in summer, with high-altitude trekking, mountaineering and mountain biking itineraries.
Bathed by the splendid Mosigo Lake, a stunning artificial basin, San Vito di Cadore is an outstanding destination not only for its scenic beauty, but also its historical and artistic heritage. As you stroll through the streets of the centre, you will come across two churches next to each other. The first is the Archdeaconry dedicated to Saints Vito Modesto and Crescenza, vaguely Tyrolean but actually ancient, founded in the early 13th century, and rich in frescoes and wooden statues. The second is the late-Gothic-style Church of the Madonna della Difesa.
Finally, don’t miss the Ethnographic Museum, which explains the culture and traditions of San Vito, featuring everyday objects, scale reproductions of bridges and mills, and historical photographs.
