Marmorplus

The Covelano and Lasa Marble, the “white gold” of the historic Jennwand quarries, is known far beyond the country’s borders.

High above Silandro and Lasa in the Val Venosta valley there is a centuries-old marble quarry where the purest marble of Europe is quarried. It was already known a long time ago: Even the milestones along the Roman road Via Claudia Augusta were made of Lasa Marble, in the Middle Ages it was used for various statues and decorations. Today, the marble from the Val Venosta is used worldwide for large projects, such as Ground Zero in New York.

This noble, hard and resistant material is transported in large blocks from the marble quarry to the valley by an inclined railway and is then processed further. However, not only the marble creations are worth seeing, there is much more to discover. Therefore Marmorplus has been offering guided tours around the Lasa and Covelano Marble for some time now.

Quarrying, use and history of the marble are part of the weekly excursions. In total there are three: The two-hour guided walk "World of Marble" shows the marble village of Lasa, a master stonemason's workshop, the Lasa Marble World and the "Lasa Marble" works. In contrast, the Marble Adventure Tour and the Historic Search for Marble Traces last around 7 hours, each of which combines a hike with interesting information and visits to special places. And how to reach Marmorplus? The tours start from the Lasa train station. A bus stop and car park are nearby.
