San Martino di Castrozza and Fiera di Primiero
San Martino di Castrozza is the heart of the Primiero Valley. Surrounded by the spectacular peaks of the Dolomites, this town is the location of our Aparthotel Sporting. In the winter, staying here will allow you access to the lifts with the free skibuses.
Fiera di Primiero is also a lively location, full of shops, and restaurants where you can enjoy the excellent Trentino cuisine. In the past, it was a location characterised by the trading of silver, iron and copper... Its name reflects this ancient aspect!
Valle del Primiero-San Martino di Castrozza has chosen to adopt eco-friendly solutions: “Green Way Primiero” is a project that provides bike-sharing services and recharging stations for electric cars, while the lifts in the area are powered from renewable sources.
Unmissable events and food and wine
One of the most traditional events is the Gran Festa del Desmontegar, which every year celebrates the ritual of transhumance, a 4-day celebration in which cows decorated with flowers and coloured ornaments and surrounded by more than 15,000 tourists, come down from the alpine dairy farms for the winter.
During a holiday in Valle del Primiero-San Martino di Castrozza a taste of alpine dairy products is a must. These include the carne fumada of Siror, the Tosèla and the Botìro di Malga, a special butter listed by the Slow Food organisation.
