Parish Church of Pinzano

The St. Stephen Church of Pinzano, or Stephanuskirche (in German), boasts a beautiful winged altar by Hans Klocker.

In Pinzano (Pinzon) there's a little gem, the local St. Stephen Parish Church. It is said, that a chapel made of wood or stone already existed here before 1000 AD. Around 1200, a church was mentioned in this place - about 200 years later it was converted to Gothic style. A beautiful hike leads today from Egna to Pinzano, a component locality of Montagna, through one of the best wine-growing areas of South Tyrol. Also a shorter walk is possible: If you follow from Montagna the track of the "Vecia Ferrovia", the old Val di Fiemme railway line, you reach Pinzano in one hour.

The St. Stephen Church is famous above all for its winged altar from the time around 1490 AD. A unique work of art and one of the five most beautiful winged altars of Tyrol! It depicts the patron saints of the church, St. Stephen and St. Laurent, and the Blessed Mother who passes the apple - the symbol of the world - to her child. The builder was none other than Hans Klocker, artist from Bressanone, owner of an altar atelier and mayor of the episcopal town. Already then he enjoyed the highest respect. On the rear gallery of the Parish Church of Pinzano, however, there's the Wörle Organ, realised by Ignaz Franz Wörle from Bolzano in the 18th century.

Currently, access may be subject to certain restrictions.
