Sights in Chiusa & Villandro

A village with history

Characteristic, kissed by the sun, set amidst vineyards, chestnut trees and quiet grazing fields ... Villandro is on the south side of the Sarentine Alps, at an altitude of 880 m, right in the green heart of South Tyrol. The town territory goes from the vineyards 550 metres away, including chestnut trees and soft slopes, to the enchanting Villandro Mount, 2,509 m.

Did you know
that ...

… the first inhabitants of the Villandro region date back to 6,000 years ago?
At the end of the seventies, during some building works on the Plunacker site, in the heart of the town of Villandro, some remains were found dating back to the Stone Age, the Romans and the Middle Age. Visit the Villandro Archeopark for a journey through ancient times ...
 

One place, a lot to see: Villandro & Chiusa

The old town centre

Defregger Alley in Villandro was used as the backdrop for the “Das letzte Aufgebot” painting by Franz von Defregger.

Church / cemetery

The most beautiful cemetery in South Tyrol

Cemeteries are certainly not a tourist attraction! But the cemetery of Villandro is really special. Differently from the rest of the region, here crosses and graves are set so that our beloved who have passed away are facing the sunrise. And those visiting their loved ones take place behind the crosses, forged by the blacksmith of Villandro.

Villandro mine

The history of the Villandro mine started over 3,000 years ago and continued up to the twentieth century. Descend into this underground world ...
