Sciliar-Catinaccio visitor centre

In the building of a former Venetian sawmill near Tires, the visitor centre of the Sciliar-Catinaccio Nature Park is located.

At the entrance of the scenic Ciamin valley at Tires, the “Steger Säge” sawmill is a rare example of a water powered Venetian sawmill. The building was renovated some years ago and the sawmill is ready for use again. Exactly there the visitor centre of the Sciliar-Catinaccio Nature Park is accommodated. Plenty of information about flora and fauna, geology and traditions of handicrafts are shown.

Of course a part of the exhibition is devoted to the old Venetian sawmill. Therefore every Wednesday (during the opening period) a presentation of the sawmill is shown at 11 am, 3 pm and 4.30 pm. Furthermore the living quarters of the master sawyer are accessible.

Opening hours:
June 5, 2018, to October 13, 2018:
Tuesday to Saturday from 9.30 am to 12.30 am and from 2 pm to 5.30 pm
in July and August open also Sundays
