Archeoparc Velturno

There are two interesting excavation sites in the Valle Isarco valley which finds date back to the Neolithic Age (5000 BC)

The climatically favoured area in the Valle Isarco valley with its sunny slopes was already settled in the Neolithic Age. This is documented by findings, which were partly made in the middle of the village centres. Two of them, in Velturno village and in Villandro, approx. 12 km apart, were each dedicated to an Archeoparc, a museum structure that can also be visited today.

The Archeoparc Velturno - "Archeoparc Feldthurns" in German, "Archeoparc Velturno" in Italian - was opened after about 20 years of excavations in the Tanzgasse area. Gravesites and remains of pottery production, agriculture and livestock breeding were found here, some date back to 5000 BC. It was the Neolithic period. The findings include a megalithic site, a stone stele, a menhir, bone remains, gold and pottery, which demonstrate ancient burial forms and cult practices.

An archaeological exhibition with the finds awaits you at the Local Museum in Velturno Castle, 240 metres away from the Archeoparc. And how to reach the Archeoparc Velturno? It is located in the centre of the village, in the Tanzgasse alley no. 26, near the parish church. You may combine a visit also to a hike, such the one which takes you to Velturno via Giovignano.
