Favogna on the southern extremity of South Tyrol is a spot of recreation and offers a biotope.

The locality of Favogna (Fennberg), composed of Favogna di Sopra (Oberfennberg) and Favogna di Sotto (Unterfennberg), belongs to the municipality of Magrè and is made of only a few buildings, farms and a church. This village located at the southern extremity of South Tyrol is a popular place in summer months. When in the valley temperatures rise above 30 degrees, at Favogna, located at 1,000 m a.s.l., you can expect some degrees less. Originally Favogna di Sotto was a summer holiday resort for the inhabitants of Magrè, Cortaccia and Cortina all’Adige.

Round Lake Favogna, which is very popular for bathing and a biotope, numerous animal and plant species have their natural habitat. Various hiking trails take you across the intact nature, most of them can also be walked with prams. A peculiarity: round the churchyard of the Romanesque St. Leonhard Church dating back to the 13th century, there is an iron chain. According to a legend, every seven years this chain elongates for one link. When the chain will rechuck the church three times, there will be the end of the world…

Another peculiarity can be found at 1,034 m a.s.l. - the highest-located Müller-Thurgau vineyard. The rough rock faces of the mountain during the day accumulate the warmth of the sunrays and release them in the night. So you have to taste the “Feldmarschall von Fenner zu Fennberg”!
