Must See’s

Villandro
The small idyllic village of Villandro stretches from the vineyards in the Valle Isarco to the gentle hiking area of the Villandro Alp up to the Monte di Villandro.
The surrounding area was intensively inhabited and frequented during various stages of prehistoric times, in Roman times and in the Middle Ages, thanks to its excellent location and mild climate. It is a popular holiday destination, especially for culture and history enthusiasts. In the centre of the village stand two Gothic bell towers that belong to the parish church of St. Stephen in Villandro and the picturesque St. Michael's Church. Both churches house wonderful artworks!

Villandro Silver Mine
In the Middle Ages the Villandro Silver Mine area was one of the most important mining areas in Tyrol. The mountain was downright perforated by a network of 25 km of tracks until in the 20th century it fell into oblivion.
In recent years, the mine has been renovated and is open to the public.

Sabiona Monastery
In a scenic position amidst forests and vineyards, the Sabiona Monastery towers on a prominent hill above Chiusa. It is considered as one of the oldest places of pilgrimage sites in Tyrol and was seat of the bishopric of Sabiona until around 1000 AD when the seat was transferred to Bressanone.
Since 1687, the monastery has been a Benedictine monastery, first inhabited by the nuns of Nonnberg close to Salzburg. Still today, nuns live here according to the rule of Saint Benedict of Nursia. The monastery itself is not open to the public, but the beautiful churches can be visited. The Sabiona Monastery is only accessible by foot. Starting from the town of Chiusa you walk on the Sabiona Promenade or along the Via Cruxis.
