Marble in Silandro and Lasa

The White Gold in Venosta Valley

Around the idyllic village of Lasa at the foot of the Ortles massif, the purest marble has been mined in Europe for centuries. Even in ancient times the hard, resilient Lasa marble was used for the milestones on the Roman road Via Claudia Augusta, and in modern times, the marble seams were rediscovered. Hence, the noble rock has been quarried since the mid-19th in the Jennwand and the Weisswasser quarry. Today, Lasa marble is mainly used in construction, architecture and art.

Guests can immerse themselves in the exciting history of the white gold on marble hikes and tours of the Weisswasser quarry, to the Covelano quarry and the sloped railway that transports the heavy blocks into the valley.
The interior of the centuries-old marble quarry itself cannot be visited for safety reasons.

The  Marble & Apricots summer festival offers a varied program surrounding two of the most influential Venosta Valley cultural assets.
