Only two curves below the pass Campo Carlo Magno, where Charlemagne once crossed the Alps with his army, the resort spreads south. Surrounded by the peaks of the Brenta Dolomites and the Adamello Glacier, Madonna di Campiglio is well protected and has a centuries-old history as a hospice place.
Tourism was always characteristic of Madonna di Campiglio (in old German: Sankt Maria in Pein) and even in the second half of the 19th century the European nobility traveled to stay here. Numerous names of streets, squares and buildings but also the customs of the area remind of these times.
The importance of skiing for the almost 1,000 inhabitants has been a lived passion for many years. As a venue for the competitions of the Alpine Ski World Cup, the town enjoys an international reputation and attracts guests from all over the world to Madonna di Campiglio.
