Nature plays, museums, castles and countless churches - the mining industry led to a cultural flourishing in the Middle Ages, which can still be felt today. The architecture of the 16th century has been preserved to this day in the center of Vipiteno. Some new buildings give the pedestrian zone a special flair. In the side valleys such as Racines, Val Ridanna, Val di Vizze or Val di Fleres magnificent churches and chapels bear witness to the blessing of the commerce routes. And despite the mountain paths and arduous paths the pilgrimage in Maria Trens has developed splendidly.
