Lana di Mezzo

Lana di Mezzo is located between Lana di Sopra and Lana di Sotto, its parish church is dedicated to S. Croce.

The eye-catcher of Lana di Mezzo is undoubtedly the S. Corce Parish Church. This sacred building was constructed in 1940 in the style of an ancient Christian basilica. In the interior it boasts a crucifixion group, a massive marble pulpit and a copy of the famous portrait of Mary painted by Lukas Cranach. By the way: with a weight of 6,248 kg, the parish church of Lana has the largest and heaviest bell of South Tyrol.

A further sight of Lana di Mezzo is the ancient electro loco of the Lana-Postal railway taken into operation in 1913. This train was also called “apple express”, as it was mainly used to transport local fruits. It was constructed by the ropeway pioneer Luis Zuegg.

To those who prefer staying under the open sky we recommend a walk on the Brandis Waalweg pathl or a cycling tour through the blooming apple orchards in spring.
