Pozzo

Pozzo is a small but very beautiful old hamlet of Caldaro.

Only the local population knows the borderline of the hamlet of Pozzo, also known as Pfuss (the historical German name - 523 m a.s.l.), as it is very close to the village of San Antonio. It is only recognisable by the “Lahn”, the stream that rushes down into the valley from the Mendola. Also the street names allow conclusions on the districts. Nevertheless Pozzo boasts its own chapel dedicated to S. Rochus and dating back to the 16th century, as well as a little shop and some accommodations.

The centre of the village is characterised by contorted, narrow alleys. On the outer facade of the church there is a fresco that illustrates S. Christopher and dates back to the year 1519. A little later, around 1589, the residence above the church was transformed into a beautiful construction in the Oltradige style. The Mühlburg Castle, also called “Schlössl”, today unfortunately is rather ruinous, but still inhabited.
