The Museum Ladin Ciastel de Tor, in San Martino in Badia, opens a window onto the legendary Ladin world, accompanying guests on a rich tapestry of archaeology, geology, craftsmanship as well as exploring the development of tourism across the Ladin valleys in the Dolomites. The Museum Ladin Ursus Ladinicus, in San Cassiano, is dedicated to the Dolomites prehistoric bear.

Museums
Craftsmanship in Val Badia An art living on the edge of traditions and passion. Over the course of the centuries, crafts have represented an important means of living beside agriculture and farming for the Ladin valleys. Passed down from one generation to the next, these trades were born out of necessity. They slowly became a passion which can now be admired across various shops in the valley, where you can marvel and purchase strikingly beautiful products and decorations.
Dolomites The Dolomites: where culture comes alive. When it comes to describing the beauty of the Dolomites, nothing comes close to the real thing. Infinite beauty is the perfect stage for contemporary visual art. Thanks to the dedication of cultural institutes and associations, there are countless initiatives at the heart of the cultural Ladin offer. The ‘Tru d’artisc’ stretches between La Villa and San Cassiano: this outdoor gallery is home to works by different Dolomites’ artists. SMACH has left its mark across San Martino in Badia, a land art project which translates into a biennial outdoor exhibition. The Unika and Biennale Gherdëina take place just over Passo Gardena, the valley home to its famous wood carvers, attracting the attention of artists and guests from all over the world.
