Art and Culture in Venosta Valley

Inhabited already in ancient times by Celts, Romans and Rhaetian Venostes, the centuries have left their historical traces in the cultural landscape on the Adige river.
Here in Venosta Valley you will find tourist attractions, castles and churches with frescoes and artworks from more than 10 centuries of history. Early Romanesque churches along the old trade route Via Claudia Augusta link together at the foot of the high alpine scenery to form a unique cultural landscape. In the dialectic between living customs and an innovative spirit, the cultural region of Vinschgau still today spawns renowned individuals engaged in the cultural sector, artists and architects.
