Tires al Catinaccio, the mountain village in the Dolomites
Living here means experiencing South Tyrol at its most beautiful.
The municipality of Tires is located in the rear part of the Tires valley. Around half of the municipality's territory belongs to the Sciliar-Catinaccio Nature Park. Since the late 1980s, Tires can be reached from the village of Prato all’Isarco via the village district Aica di Fiè, or alternatively via the Passo di Costalunga and the Passo Nigra. The heart of the village lies 1,028 metres above sea level on the right side of the valley.
In winter, Tires is a paradise for ski sports enthusiasts: The Alpe di Siusi and Latemar-Obereggen ski areas are in close reach. In summer, countless hiking paths and Alpine routes lead up to the Catinaccio massif and the Sciliar and Latemar mountains. Tires al Catinaccio is also highly popular with hikers and mountaineers. Most tours start right at their doorstep.
