Moena is a small village in the northern Italian region Trentino-Alto Adige/Südtirol.
Located in the heart of the captivating Dolomites and surrounded by such mighty mountains as the Catinaccio, Sassolungo, Monzoni and Latemar, the village is the largest comune in the Fassa Valley. The village is located almost in the heart of the “Tre Valli” region, a ski area including a total of three valleys, state-of-the-art ski lifts and carefully-groomed ski runs.
In addition to its natural treasures, Moena has a lot to offer also from a cultural point of view. Sights include the church of San Vigilio, with a Gothic bell tower and 18th-century paintings by Valentino Rovisi, and the ancient church of San Volfango, with 15th-century frescoes and a Baroque ceiling by Giovanni Guadagnini (17th century).
Once a year in Moena takes place the festival La Turchia, according to Turkish tradition villagers celebrating an event which dates back 323 years.
