Stairways to Heaven

Middle Ages in the Heart of the Alps

There are many significant cultural treasures located in the Upper Venosta Valley, like the churches, abbeys and chapels dating back to the early Middle Ages. The sacred buildings have even survived the war between the Grisonians and the Habsburgs.

The Stairways to Heaven project passes historic treasures of the early and the high Romanesque period, between Grisons in Switzerland and South Tyrol. The sacred relics of the Middle Ages start from the Benedictine St. Johann Abbey in Val Müstair (Switzerland) to the Monte Maria/Marienberg Abbey above Burgusio in Malles/Mals. Monte Maria is the highest located abbey in Europe. Other Stairways to Heaven gems in Upper Venosta Valley are the Carolingian St. Benedict in Malles and St. Veit on the mythical Tarces hill.
