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 Val 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. On a regular basis in summer time, a presentation of the sawmill is shown.
And exactly in this building, 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, furthermore a bird call station and a film booth are offered. Also the living quarters of the master sawyer are accessible which include also a room dedicated to the geology of the area.
