Art and culture
Val Venosta is full of lovely monuments and sights of historical importance. On the fascinating "Roman Alpine Street", the roman sites are of artistic and cultural merit, and many churches are of cultural and historical importance. The library in Silandro is a popular attraction.
Make a trip to the nearby Reschen Pass (Passo Resia) where you'll find a church tower sticking out of the reservoir where there was once a village; to Marienberg abbey or Churburg castle with lovely courtyard and a substantial collection of armour, or to the medieval town of Glurns, Castel Juval or the Messner Mountain museum in Sulden.
Leading up to Christmas, traditional Christmas markets offer a unique atmosphere that puts you in the mood for the festive season.
A Foodie's Paradise
In Val Venosta it is impossible not to enjoy culinary delights. At a number of festivals regional delicacies are offered. Wine, bread and bacon and other South Tyrolean specialties such as "Schlutzkrapfen" (half-moon pastas filled with spinach and soft cheese), "Marillenknödel" (sweet dumplings filled with apricots) or "Apfelstrudel" (apple strudel) are surely worth trying.
