The San Pellegrino Pass is an Alpine pass at a height of 1,918 meters located between the Trentino and Veneto Dolomites.
It connects the beautiful Val di Fassa (and therefore the Province of Trento) with Val Biois, in the province of Belluno; today it represents one of the main tourist resorts of all the Dolomites due to the enchanting beauty of the place.
Located 11 kilometers from Moena, the San Pellegrino Pass is full of green and flowery pastures crowned by the high Dolomite peaks, which have become part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site.
In summer, the pass is the ideal destination for many tourists looking for adventurous excursions, with both historical and naturalistic interest, along mountain ranges such as that of the Costabella, the Monzoni Group, the Col Margherita and Cima Bocche.
The area adjacent to the pass was the scene of numerous battles of the First World War, and it is possible to visit the testimonies thanks to the reconstruction of walkways, tunnels and trenches used by soldiers at the beginning of the century.
The place is also an exceptional gym for lovers of any outdoor sport: from cycling to exercise, from hiking to horseback riding.
Thanks to the wide range of attractions, the pass has become an increasingly popular destination for many types of tourists, further encouraged by the excellent variety of gastronomic delicacies typical of the place.
In winter, Passo San Pellegrino is a popular ski resort with excellent hotel facilities, as well as excellent ski lifts and various tracks characterized by different levels of difficulty and length.
Over 64 km of slopes between 1900 and 2500, as well as the connection with the well-known Falcade station via the beautiful Col Margherita cable car, represent a unique opportunity for all winter sports enthusiasts.
The ski slopes are particularly popular because they are widely illuminated by the sun, and the spectacular view of the Maromolada invites even more to live an experience in these places.
Those who appreciate Nordic skiing will also know the Centro Fondo Alochet, part of the Nordic Super Skipass circuit and equipped with beautiful tracks and long wooded routes.
By visiting the pass, it is also possible to get in touch with beautiful attractions such as the homonymous and crystalline lake, the hospice visited by pilgrims who were heading towards the Agordino, as well as the small church of Sant’Antonio da Padova embellished from the paintings of the artist G.B. Chiocchetti, originally from Moena.
