Tubre village

Eight churches with fabulous frescoes and interesting stories present themselves in the main village of Tubre in Val Monastero

In Laudes near Malles in the Val Venosta valley, the road and the side valley branch off, which then follows the Rio Ram and leads towards the Stelvio National Park and Tubre village (Taufers). The main village of Tubre in Val Monastero, the westernmost municipality in South Tyrol, can be found a few kilometres into the valley, close to the Swiss border. Primary school, post office, shops, town hall, bars and restaurants - Tubre village serves the entire South Tyrolean Val Monastero.

A road already ran through here in Roman times. The rural village is characterised above all by its churches and castles. The ruins of Rotund and Reichenberg stand close together on the hill above Tubre, in addition to a total of 8 churches. At the entrance to the village, three of them welcome you, one more worth seeing than the other: St. Blaise is the parish church, the cemetery chapel of St. Michael behind it houses the Parish Museum with its treasures. Then there is the Votive Church of St. John, whose history dates back to the 9th century - probably the oldest building in the valley with an ancient image of St. Christopher on the north wall and valuable frescoes inside.

At Tubre, the Avigna Valley branches off, a huge natural outdoor centre that combines idyllic hiking trails, quiet spots and the high alpine pastures of Tubre. In winter, the only cross-country ski track and the only sledge run of the municipality of Tubre are located here. The cold season, the first days of March to be exact, are also interesting in the village itself: Cowbells can be heard, pranks are played and young people in farm clothes populate the streets. It is the age-old custom of ringing out the winter - called "Winterausschellen" - to awaken the spirits of spring.
