The Christmas market in Val Gardena

In Val Gardena, Santa Cristina, this year the season of Advent will feature the typical Christmas Market which will be held from December the 1st to 31st , from 10.00 to 19.00. The event, now in its ninth edition is the ideal time to savor the taste of traditional Ladin and find many local crafts as presents at Christmas. The stalls offer, in fact, the sweet cinnamon and gingerbread along with tasty dishes to satisfy the taste buds of the visitors, and crafts such as ornaments in wood and glass, small carvings, nativity scenes, angels , candles, textile crafts, pottery and porcelain items. If we then put the mulled wine, accompanied by traditional music, you already know that it will end well.
