A walk through Lasa fascinates with marble, churches, art and nature.
From the train station in Lasa the tour leads to the village center, past the marble Emperor Franz Josef I. (Raiffeisen square) to the parish church with cemetery and Marx church, to the marble world in the tricorn of the Lasa Marmo (visit with the Lasa marble guide).
On the bike path you will find art: “Pillars of Freedom” created by international artists (at the Marmor & Marillen festival 2017). The view follows the sloped railway to the Monte Tramontana mountain and up to the “Bremsberg”, where, with a bit of luck, the train transports a block of marble weighing several tons into the valley. At the Bagni square, the marble fountain refreshes with a view over the river Adige to “Pfeiler and Koundl”. The marble walkway leads to the way of the cross, which goes through the orchards to the sanctuary of Maria Lourdes.
Back in the village, the path leads past the “Johannes Steinhäuser” school for stonecarving and numerous artworks, to the hill of St. Sisinius church - 360° panorama: Monte Sole mountain, Sesvenna group, Stelvio National Park, Lasa Valley with the Croda Jenne, fruit and vegetable gardens.
Variants to continue walking:
- Lasa marble way
- Natural monument sulphur spring
- Cengles and Oris
