San Michele

On the road from Castelrotto via the Passo Pinei towards Ortisei in the Val Gardena, you pass the hamlet of San Michele.

San Michele - in Ladin language called San Michiel - and Passo Pinei represent the border between the mainly German-speaking area of the municipality of Castelrotto and the Val Gardena, which belongs to the Ladin-speaking area. San Michele is a scattered settlement that has some 340 inhabitants, its centre is formed by a tavern and the Romanesque St Michael Church. This small church is decorated with several frescos dating back to the 15th century (outer walls) and the 18th century (inner walls).

Those who walk from Castelrotto to Passo Pinei, pass the village of San Michele. From this place you can also do great hiking tours to Mt Bullaccia with its Witches’ Benches and the highland of the Alpe di Siusi. The hamlet is located at 1,280 m asl in the east of the settlement of Tiosels.
