Tesido is located un a sun-drenched terrace at the beginning of the charming Valle di Casies.
A walk on the panoramic trail Valle di Casies, a tour on the cycle track across the Valle di Casies or a walk to the Alpe di Tesido, activities under the open sky, that’s fun in Tesido. Surrounded by lushly green pastures, a view of the Dolomites, this is how you can imagine your holidays in Tesido.
Tesido is located at 1,200 m asl and has got almost the same number of inhabitants. Its parish church is dedicated to S. Giorgio and was constructed around 800 as defensive castle and cultus site. Leonhard von Brixen and Simon von Taisten decorate the church with their pieces of arts. And like the name of the latter reveals, he was born in Tesido, called Taisten in German.
For relaxation we recommend the “naturally fit” pyramid round trail. However, if you seek higher-located hiking destinations, we recommend you the Monte Luta, in winter ideal for being scaled with snow shoes. Cross-country skiing is possible on the 40 km of runs in the Valle di Casies, while for tobogganing you can walk to the Alpine pasture Mudler Alm.
