High above the Valle Isarco, between the Valgardena and the Valle di Tisa, there is the municipality of Castelrotto.
Castelrotto is a market town comprising several villages between the Valle Isarco and the Valgardena, in the area round the striking Sciliar mountain. The municipality includes the villages of Siusi allo Sciliar, Alpe di Siusi, San Michele, San Osvaldo, San Valentino, Tagusa, Tisana, Bulla, Roncadizza and Oltretorrente. The last three, however, are located on the south-western side of the Valgardena valley and belong to the Ladin cultural circle. Often these villages are considered to be part of Ortisei.
The municipal territory of Castelrotto stretches from 400 to 2,958 m asl and also includes the vast Alpe di Siusi, which is the largest high Alpine pasture of Europe, making up almost half of the municipal territory. Also the Sciliar Catinaccio nature park stretches over parts of Castelrotto.
