The municipality of Castello-Molina di Fiemme is composed of two villages, Molina and Castello, about 2 kilometres apart from each other. Castello (981 metres) still preserves its 16th century urban texture harmoniously combined with tourist facilities, and Molina (853 metres), mostly renowned for its mills in the past, to this day provides its visitors with amazing landscapes and the chance to practice many sports.
