Of the most unusual tours in South Tyrol are the marble hikes to the marble
quarries in the Stilfser Joch National Park
: the Lasa Marble Trail-Sloped Railway Platform and the Covelano Marble Trail. The interior of the centuries-old marble quarry itself cannot be visited for safety reasons, but the walks are still a highlight for nature and cultural hikers.
Signs provide information to interested hikers on the history of marble mining in Covelano
and in Lasa
, and the sloped railway
for marble transport, and they convey a lasting impression of the hardships the miners used to have to endure.
