Resort: Canazei - Passo Pordoi
Categories: Nature

Description: Sass Pordoi, in the upper part of Val di Fassa, can be reached by the cable car (both in summer and in winter) from Pordoi Pass (12 km from Canazei), which, in only 4 minutes, takes you up to 2,950 m. The mountains which surround you emerged from the oceans millions of years ago, and appear extraordinarily close. The Marmolada, the Sassolungo, the Sella, the Catinaccio, and a little further away, the basin of Ampezzo. Then the Ortles and Cevedale groups, and on to the Swiss and Austrian Alps. From the top of Pordoi you can also clearly see numerous paths and "vie ferrate" which criss-cross the blocks of Dolomite.

Curiosities and Legends

The legend of Cianbolpin

The legend of Cianbolpin tells of the love lost and found again of a young shepherd from Canazei for Donna Chenina, a stunningly beautiful "vivana" living on the slopes of Pordoi. After falling in love with her, Cianbolpin left her after some time to go back to his village that he missed too much. But he found it completely changed and had to go through a long series of vicissitudes amoung ogres, bandits and magical mantels before being able to return to Donna Chenina. This legend is present in several different versions in the entire Alpine range and is a classical tale of the Fassa valley tradition.
