THE VILLAGE AND THE TERRITORY
Cortina is a land that really needs no introduction. But we at bghimagazine tell you a bit anyway. The Tofane, the Pomagagnon, the Cristallo, the Faloria, the Sorapiss, the Becco di Mezzodì, the Nuvolau group and the Croda da Lago. What are they? The mountains that from here you can see and love. Center in the middle also of the Ladin culture, Cortina has a vast territory, so as to be second only to the regional capital of Venice. Springs, streams and waterfalls. Here there is something for everyone. The municipal seat is at 1200 meters but clearly there are peaks that reach and exceed 3000.
City also rich in monuments.
To see: the church of saints Filippo and Giacomo, that of Sant'Antonio da Padova, of the Madonna della Difesa and of San Francesco.
Countless facilities for winter tourism and skiing.
A classic, charming place. That historical winter tourism, often portrayed in the films of the Italian comedy as a soothing place of bourgeois escape. But the cult film Il conte Max, 1957, with Vittorio De Sica and Alberto Sordi, directed by Giorgio Bianchi, was also filmed here.
