Places of Interest in Venosta Valley

The centuries have left varying historical traces in the cultural region of Venosta Valley. The old Roman trade route Via Claudia Augusta and numerous castles, churches and monasteries bear elegant witness to this, as do the marble village Lasa/Laas and contemporary museums as well as the two Messner Mountain Museum sites in Solda/Sulden and Juval Castle.

The “Romanesque Route” goes from the Carolingian Benedictine St. Johann monastery in Taufers/Tubré to St. Veit and from the mystical Tarces hill to Malles/Mals with its five church towers, including the Carolingian St. Benedict church.

Close to Europe’s highest abbey, Monte Maria, the Via Claudia Augusta proceeds to the mediaeval village ofGlorenza/Glurns, passing castles with precious frescoes like Churburg castle at Sluderno/Schluderns and Castellbello-Ciardes/Kastelbell-Tschars. Impressively, the Romanesque trail leads all the way to St. Proculus church in Naturno/Naturns with its pre-Carolingian frescoes from the 8th century A.D.
