Sluderno Gate Tower

One of the imposing towers of the town wall of Glorenza in the Val Venosta valley houses an exhibition and the local information office.

The well-preserved town wall dates back to the 16th century and was built by Emperor Maximilian I as a bulwark to protect Glorenza. Still today it surrounds the town centre with its enchanting arcades and idyllic town square. There, where the road from Sluderno leads to the town and where the large car park for visitors is located, the so-called Sluderno Gate Tower - "Schludernser Torturm" in German, "Torre di Porta Sluderno" in Italian - provides access to the town centre.

For centuries it protected the town from invaders, and since 2011 it has also been a much visited sight. At that time the exhibition "Stationen einer kleinen Stadt" (Stations of a small town) was opened, which tells the history of Glorenza on two floors. Information boards and objects present trade and defence, market and professions as well as life in Glorenza in this unique ambience. A corner roundel, part of the defensive corridor, can also be reached from the Sluderno Gate Tower.

The Glorenza Tourist Information Office is located on the ground floor. By the way: At the other end of the town, just a few minutes' walk away, there is another tower, the Church Tower or Tubre Gate Tower - it houses the exhibition about the life and work of the artist Paul Flora. And how to reach the Sluderno Gate Tower? The car park (chargeable) is right in front of the tower. The bus line 274 also runs between Sluderno and Glorenza.
