Churches and monasteries

Every village and every locality along the South Tyrolean Wine Road features its own parish church: the name day of the respective saint is celebrated with a procession or a festival.

Also the churches, the chapels and the monasteries along the Wine Road offer some superlatives and cultural peculiarities, including the highest brick steeple of South Tyrol with its impressive 86 metres of height, the presumably oldest church of Tyrol, one of the oldest fresco cycles in the entire German speaking area and the majestic “Dom auf dem Lande” (Dome in the Countryside).
