La Crusc

Nature, culture and cuisine

Santa Croce/La Crusc is a small ski and hiking area in Alta Badia, where a unique natural, cultural and culinary experience awaits.

Those seeking peace far from the maddening crowds will particularly enjoy this area, for it is here that the Ladin way of life is practised with heart and soul. The phenomenal natural formations at the heart of this UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site offer all kinds of impressive experiences.


Pilgrims have been heading to La Crusc for many years to get their fill of the spiritual energy of this historical village and to enjoy the breathtaking landscapes of this fascinating mountain world.

The over 500 year old mountain church and pilgrimage site Santa Croce, is the centrepiece of the village and is located at the foot of the Sas dla Crusc-Lavarela mountain chain. A magnificent mountain landscape, which unites picturesque natural peaks, centuries-old history and spirituality, forms its backdrop.

La Crusc is more than just a ski area. It is a place to experience things not available elsewhere in the Alps. Whether on or off the slopes or hiking trails, in summer or in winter, La Crusc is an extra special place of relaxation and recovery.
