Plars di Mezzo

The Lagundo-Velloi Chairlift starts in Plars di Mezzo and takes you to the mountain hamlet of Velloi, the panoramic village of Lagundo

The slopes rise slowly from Plars di Mezzo (literally: Middle Plars) in a sunny, panoramic position towards the mountain. The area extends up to Plars di Sopra (Upper Plars) and then further into the alpine heights of the Tessa Group. Here, however, at lower altitudes, vines, pine trees and orchards surround the village. Plars di Mezzo invites you to spend your time outside. Already in the first days of spring, the Mediterranean climate can be felt, which also ensures mild winter days.

A striking building in Plars di Mezzo is Plars Castle: It was already known in the 14th century as one of the most beautiful and largest farmsteads in Lagundo. It was later rebuilt into a castle and today houses a hotel with its own wine farm. Above it, the Lagundo Waalweg path leads past, a 6 km long hike along a so-called Waal, as the historic irrigation channels in the Val Venosta and Merano regions are called. Another pleasant excursion is the Schlundenstein Circuit: It is named after the rock and boulder field that is very popular among climbers and boulderers.

On the edge of the village, the cable car starts up to Velloi, an enchanting hamlet and viewpoint. The basket lift takes you further up to the alpine pastures on the famous Merano High Route. By the way: The alpine dairy of Lagundo is also located in Plars di Mezzo. It supplies many shops in Merano and surroundings with cheese, fresh milk, healthy curd cheese and goat's milk yoghurt.
