The history of San Martino di Castrozza

and San Martino today

Storia San Martino di Castrozza

The church with its Romanesque bell tower is the last remains of the charitable institution of  Saints Martin and Julian that hosted the wayfarers who used to cross the Rolle Pass and from which San Martino di Castrozza originates.


The tourist resort and the first hotel date back to 1873 and, as far back as the beginning of the 20th century, San Martino di Castrozza was a renowned tourist resort attended by the upper class of the Austrian-Hungarian Empire. 

Immersed in a green basin and surrounded by the Natural Park of Paneveggio-Pale di San Martino and framed by the majestic peaks of the Dolomites;  the Cimon della Pala, the Vezzana, the Rosetta, the Sass Maor, the Cima della Madonna, the Cavallazza and the Colbricon, San Martino is to be considered a veritable naturalistic paradise!

Two hotels, the same soul solo



Hotel Cristallo & Hotel Orsingher are two different facilities, yet they are doubly linked: not only by the appealing heated tunnel that joins them physically, but over all because they are run by the same family, the Taufers, who are ready to welcome you up in the mountains and introduce you to the local culture and taste.


Good, standard hotel. Professional staff, perfect location in San Martino
+ very good location, 300 m walk from the town centre + professional and very helpful staff in the hotel + excellent wifi connection in the room + good value for money - sleep quality depends on how quiet are the neighbours (rooms sound isolation is not the best)
