The village of Corvara in Badia is located at 1,568 m a.s.l. at the foot of the mighty Mt. Sassongher in the Dolomites

Corvara, situated in a wide basin-shaped valley, is considered to be the birthplace of tourism in the Alta Badia. Already in the late 18th century inhabitants began to explore the surrounding mountains and thus also tourists found their way to the village. The beginning of winter tourism in this area, however, was instigated by the construction of the Col Alto lift soon after WWII, which in 1947 has been transformed into the first chairlift throughout Italy.

Particularly striking is the panorama which opens up on the Pralongià High Plateau: the view on the Marmolada Glacier, the highest peak of the Dolomites, as well as on the surrounding summits and the Austrian Alps is breathtaking - the majestic mountains seem to be within one's grasp. Those who love active winter holidays will love this place, as 130 km of well-groomed slopes are waiting for you in the Alta Badia Ski Resort. Furthermore, the great scenery is perfect for snow-shoeing, winter hiking and ski touring.

In summer, Corvara is an eldorado for those who love hiking and mountain biking. Golfers can practise their favourite sport on the Alta Badia golf course which is located only few kilometres from the centre of Corvara, whereas water lovers will enjoy spending their leisure time at the Soscofes Biotope. Those who are interested in culture will find some must-sees in Corvara and its surroundings, for instance the La Crusc Pilgrimage Church at the foot of Mt. Sasso di Santa Croce and the St. Catherine Church in the village centre. Moreover, in the artist's workshop of Raimond Mussner, there is a permanent exhibition of paints in watercolours and bronze studies.
