Hamlets belonging to the municipality: Palua, Sester, Cloch, Festil, Roìs, Gherghele e Sala Etymology: Soraga from the Latin word "super aqua", above the waters, since the village lies on the left side of the stream Avisio.
The characteristic village of Soraga, probably the oldest in the valley, is regarded as the first rural settlement in the Val di Fassa. Anciently it was the boarder line between the princedoms of Trento and Bressanone, that governed all the villages of the Val di Fassa except Moena. Tranquillity, the direct contact with nature as well as a nice playground for children and a good value price make of Soraga the ideal place for families wit children and for all those who simply want to enjoy relax away from mass tourism and the hustle and bustle of city life. A window on the Catinaccio group and the Vallaccia, Soraga is also a place of handicraft and tradition. In winter a free ski bus service links the village to the different ski areas of the Val di Fassa and to the points of access of the Dolomiti Superski carousels. Cross-country skiers can ski on the Marcialonga slope. In summer Soraga is a paradise for mountain bikers and for those who want to go for a low level walk in full immersion with nature. And now a small curiosity: the famous Alpe di Fuciade, marvellous valley at the feet of the Costabella in the area of S. Pellegrino Pass belongs to the municipality of Soraga.
