The Municipality of Cortina d'Ampezzo is divided into six areas, called Sestieri: Alverà, Azzon, Cadin, Chiave and Zuel. Each Sestiere has its own organisation, active in providing social and sports activities, especially for the little ones.
In July and August, week after week a different Sestiere organises its own festive weekend, with music, food, wine, beer and the typical dessert of the area. Trying all six desserts is well worth taking part in all the festivals!
In both summer and winter , the representatives of the Sestieri challenge each other in various sport events, stirring intense local passion.
Each Sestiere has at least one village church, the main ones being Santa Giuliana in Alverà, Sant’Andrea in Col, Madonna della Salute in Cadin, Sant’Antonio da Padova in Chiave and San Rocco in Zuel. These little, traditional churches are definitely worth a visit.
