The Nature Reserve Sciliar - Catinaccio

The Sciliar-Catinaccio Nature Reserve is situated in the western part of the South Tyrolean Dolomites. With an expanse of 6,796 hectares (16,793 acres) it comprises the area encompassing the villages of Siusi, Fiè and Tireswith the Catinaccio Nature Reserve forming its eastern border.
The nature reserve also includes part of the Alpe di Siusi, Europe’s vastest expanse of Alpine pastureland, as well as the mountain forests in the areas of Siusi, Fiè and Tires and the unspoilt Valle di Ciamin valley.
The Nature Reserve visitor centre in the Ciamin valley near Tires has been accommodated in an old Venetian sawmill and testifies to a long tradition of Alpine craftsmanship. The water-driven sawmill has been completely renovated and is now in perfect working order. The living quarters have likewise been restored to their original condition. A display also explains the geological composition and evolution of the Sciliar massif.

Furthermore there is an information point for the Sciliar-Catinaccio Nature Reserve at the popular bathing lake, the pond of Fiè. Here the accent is on the flora which thrives around the small lake, the fauna found in the reed belt and the fish which live in the lake. Birdlife in the nature reserve is also given special attention focusing on a range of species with the relevant bird calls.
