Tesero is a cradle of traditions in the heart of Val di Fiemme. At Christmas time, one hundred of handcrafted cribs make their appearance from alleys, courtyards, windows, stables and cellars to live up the precious period of “Tesero and its cribs”, which appeals thousands of visitors every year. In the summertime, the inhabitants of Tesero give life to the traditional event called “Le corte de Tiezer” in the courtyards, with fantastic re-enactments of ancient crafts, culinary traditions and music.
The oldest part of the village is dotted with churches, capitals, sundials, frescoes and bread ovens. Do not forget to visit Casa Jellici, a historic building now turned into a museum and special venue for exhibitions, shows and concerts. Some of the art elements of interest are the parish church of S. Eliseo and its bizarre bell tower, the chapel of S. Rocco built in the sixteenth century, the Gothic church dedicated to the saints Leonardo and Gottardo and the baroque building hosting the Town Hall.
The inhabitants of this village are known for being fond of arts and crafts, furniture and creation of musical instruments like organs and soundboards for violins and pianos.
Tesero is the perfect destination for sports lovers, too. In the hamlet of Lago there is the Cross-Country Stadium, which hosted three editions of the Nordic World Ski Championships (1991, 2003, 2013). Furthermore, the hamlet of Pampeago is the gateway to the ski-area Ski Center Làtemar, offering 45 km of slopes. In the summertime, there is an embarrassing wealth of choices like horse riding, cycle lanes, rock climbing, Nordic walking trails, tennis courts, minigolf courses and, indeed, hiking and trekking in trails of Latemar, where the highest outdoor art gallery of the world was born - RespirArt Pampeago.
