Alpe di Siusi – Dolomites
Alpe di Siusi in the symbol of South Tyrol. It dominates a plateau that is one of the biggest in Europe and one of the most beautiful in the world. A truly special mountain that is going to charm you with its unmistakable Sciliar’s profile.
Witches and magic forces represent a mix of legends and tragical events since the remotest times of Alpe di Siusi.
Sciliar with its surrounding area is, in fact, a true protagonist in stories on witches and their tradition. This is due to the fact that many trials on witches have taken place here in Fié and they are mentioned in many historical documents known even today.

Siusi, at 1004 meters above sea level, is situated on a wavy and particularly sunny plateau at the foot of Alpe di Siusi and of Sciliar massif. Surrounded by the ragged pinnacles of the Santner and Euringer mountains, it makes you lose your sight at about 3.000 meters on the snowy peaks and makes you feel its echo throughout the Sciliar-Catinaccio Natural Park which can be entered directly from Siusi.
