Glorenza

Overview

It is the smallest town in South Tyrol, surrounded by medieval walls built by Emperor Maximilian I in the 14th century. The only one in the Venosta valley to have arcades, the centre of Glorenza has three gates, dominated by as many towers. The Sluderno gate guards the town's memories, recounting the pages of history linked to trade, defence and the professions carried out by its inhabitants over the centuries, and houses a reconstruction of the town as it appeared in the 16th century. Near the bridge over the Adige River stands the recently restored mill, and also outside the walls is the parish church of San Pancrazio, where the original Romanesque layout has been enriched with the Baroque onion dome of the bell tower. For a plunge into the world of modern art, don't miss the 'Gap' (acronym for Glurns art point), the workshop for emerging local and international artists.
