Auna di Sopra provides a great panoramic view on the valley basin of Bolzano, Colle and the Corno del Renon.
This locality of the Renon has first been mentioned as “Malgrei St. Leonhard”. The origins of the term Auna di Sopra, that is to say Oberinn in German, is probably connected with the term “Inn”, which means “path”. The “upper path”, how Auna di Sopra could be literally translated, led from Longomoso westbound to Castel Vanga.
Auna di Sopra, located at 1,300 m asl, and its surroundings are able to satisfy any visitor’s needs regarding leisure time activities. However, also those who love culture are going to be satisfied: the parish church of Auna di Sopra is considered to have been built 1,200 years ago and originally was dedicated to San Leonardo. The steeple still dates back to these times and boasts Romanesque contruction elements.
Our tip: a hike to the Crono del Renon, a picnic and a romantic sunset in summer.
