Quarazze, belonging to the municipality of Merano, extends on a little hill, only a stone’s throw from Tirolo.
Surrounded by apple orchards and vineyards and located on a talus, there is the city district of Quarazze, presenting a rather rural character. Until 1923 Quarazze used to be an independent village, until it was incorporated into the city of Merano. However, the village belongs to the parish of. S. Pietro/Quarazze. The church was built in the 14th century, while its present form dates back to the 17th century.
This is also where the Roggia di Lagundo starts, which is particularly popular in spring and autumn. In spring the landscape surrounding Quarazze invites you to make pleasant walks across the charming blossoming orchards.
Our tip: a visit of the small but mighty S. Pietro church. Even if it is located in the municipality of Tirolo, this little church belongs to the parish of Quarazze.
