San Vigilio

Hiding in the ravine of the Rio Freddo, San Vigilio is located in central position between Castelrotto and Fiè allo Sciliar

Undoubtedly you have to search this village in order to find it. Even if its highest building, the church, built in 1353 and consecrated to St Vigilius, would protrude from the ravine of the Rio Freddo, but the surrounding trees cover its steeple-top. However, the scattered settlement of San Vigilio with its farms has got some 100 inhabitants and covers an area of about 4 sqkm.

Beside the St Vigilius Church, the village offers some more highlights, such as the Siusi-San Vigilio golf club in the east end of the village towards Siusi - which has been named one of the most beautiful 18 hole courses of Northern Italy -, the Rovereto Ruin and the organic herb farm Pflegerhof on the road to Sant'Osvaldo, and last but not least the old Malenger Mill that can also be visited. These are little jewels of the village in the municipal area of Castelrotto that seems to be unimposing at first sight.
