San Costantino

The gorge of the Rio Freddo stream contrasts interestingly here with the green meadows and the rock faces of the Sciliar

The district of San Costantino (St. Konstantin) consists of numerous farms scattered in a gentle hilly landscape. The church is visible from afar and dedicated to the eponym of the village: Constantine the Great promoted Christianity in the 4th century without banning paganism. Today, the small church with the unmistakable onion-shaped tower rises on a hill near the village and is a popular place for wedding ceremonies. You can reach the St. Constantine Church - "Kristanzen", as it is called here in local dialect - on a meadow path.

Another walk leads to the St. Constantine Pond above the village. While the Fiè Pond is known as one of the most beautiful bathing lakes in all of Italy, the St. Constantine or San Costantino Pond is rather an insider's tip. At an altitude of more than 900 m a.s.l., a quiet place to relax in the middle of nature awaits you: Larches, deciduous trees and a few wooden benches surround the pond.

In the meadows and fields of San Costantino, you can also understand why the mountain grass is still used for the traditional Fiè hay bath, which has been in existence here for a century. This wellness treatment has a positive effect on the entire organism - the stay in the fragrant hay stimulates the blood flow, relieves tension and has a stimulating effect. In winter, only four kilometres separate you from the cable car, the connection to the Alpi di Siusi Skiing Area.
