The "San Vili" Pathway: a long route from Madonna di Campiglio to Trento
The San Vili Pathway ("Il Sentiero di San Vigilio" or di "San Vili") is a long route opened in 1988 by the S.A.T. (Tridentine Alpinists Society) going from Madonna di Campiglio to Trento with an extension of a total of more than one hundred kilometres.
This route is divided into six legs, each of which is a complete excursion in itself.
The name "San Vili" means San Vigilio in the ancient language of the Trentino folk and in fact the pathway follows the footsteps of the route the Saint had pioneered. St. Vigilio was the first saint to face the pathways and mountain trails in 400 A.D. during his evangelisation work. St. Vigilio is a very well known personage in the Trentino-South Tyrol area that indeed has many churches and chapels dedicated to him. First among them, the Trento Cathedral built over a pre-existing temple where the saint was buried.
