Aica di Fiè/Völser Aicha
Sunny and wide
Aica di Fie' is a small harbour in the community Fie' allo Sciliar. The harbour is located at 860 m above sea level on a sunny slope between the imposing Sciliar and Catinaccio Mountains. Findings from the Stone, Bronze and Iron Age provide evidence of the early settlement in this area. The crossover from Tires to Prösels, Umes and Fie' led through Aica di Fie' even in ancient times. Aica di Fie' was first mentioned in an official document in 1185. At the middle of the 13th century the first, single farms were mentioned. During the Middle Ages, most farms were forced to provide corvee in the form of food and labour to the "Masters of Fie" who lived in Prösels Castle.The area stretches from 600 metres above altitude with vineyards, chestnut groves, orchards and sunny slopes and farms to the village with the S. Johannes Church (first mentioned in 1250), and the highest farms at 1200 metres above sea level all the way to the main mountain of Aica di Fie' – "Tschafon". A quiet, sunny village for a recreational holiday, far from mass tourism and yet so close to the capital Bolzano.
The natural and unspoiled landscape in the surroundings is ideal for hiking and discovering flora and fauna. An ideal starting point for mountain tours in the nearby Sciliar Nature Park in the heart of the Dolomites. A varied programme of concerts, summer festivals and much more make your holiday an unforgettable adventure.
