History has a future. This is truly reflected in the fortresses and castles built in times gone by, as well as the beautiful residences with typical "Upper Etsch architecture".

Many things from long ago have survived, were lovingly restored and are now impressive testimonies of the times.

A turbulent past formed our present and now both live together in harmony. Then and now, determined by the southern flair.

Numerous monuments and great works of art can tell a story about a moving past. Prehistoric settlements, rampart fortresses, Roman ruins and pieces of art from the Roman, Gothic and Baroque times are impressive witness of the times during various historic epochs.

For millenniums, important trade roads and links have found their way through the southern part of South Tyrol: the Via Claudia Augusta.
