Mazzin (Campestrin - Fontanazzo)

Trekking on the Dolomites or cross country skiing on the Marcialonga ski-trail

Mazzin (Campestrin - Fontanazzo)
Mazzin (Campestrin - Fontanazzo)

Mazzin is Val di Fassa's smallest municipality and features the hamlets of Campestrin and Fontanazzo.

Numerous pathways from the village, through the small valleys, climb up towards the soaring peaks of the Dolomites. It is easy to remain spellbound by enchanting Lake Antermoia, the Alpine tarn sweetly isolated in the Northern area of the Catinaccio, a mythical place featuring crystal waters, isolated stone-pits, and as the legend goes, inhabited by a beautiful nymph.


In winter downhill ski enthusiasts are provided with a vast net of ski-buses guaranteeing a quick transfer to the nearby lifts of the DolomitiSuperski area - the biggest circuit throughout the Alps. From here cross-country ski buffs can directly access the Marcialonga of Fiemme and Fassa ski-trail leading all the way to Canazei and going down towards Moena. They can also have fun on the easy night-lit tracks winding between Fontanazzo and Campestrin.
The town is also renowned as archaeological site: important traces of settlements of Rhaetian origin - the ancient people who used to lived in Val di Fassa in the 5th century B.C. - have been found here. Mazzin also cherishes the only example of a rural-noble manor of the entire valley, Casa Battel, which features a pinnacled tower, frescoes and decorations of significant artistic value. Mazzin was once known as the village of the "pitores", the artisan decorators who used to emigrate seasonally in search of houses to paint.
