Egna

Overview

The best-known and best-loved part of this town in the Adige Valley are the arcades of the centre with their variously shaped arches, the scene of various commercial and social activities, today as in the past. A long past, which began in Roman times. Traces of this can be found in the archaeological site of the 'mansio Endidae', a road station on the ancient Via Claudia Augusta. The history of a more recent past is, on the other hand, told within the walls of the Museum of Popular Culture, which houses a faithful reconstruction of 19th-century domestic environments. The sacral buildings are also worth a visit: the Romanesque parish church of San Nicolò, the late Gothic church of Nostra Signora in Villa and the small church of San Floriano. In the same locality there is the old Kloesterle hospice, dating back to the 12th century, a reference point for travellers and pilgrims on their way to the Holy Land.
