Sirmiano di Sopra

Sirmiano di Sopra is known for the Toerggele tradition and the idyllic S. Apollonia church.

Sirmiano di Sopra, part of the municipality of Nalles, is located high above the valley on the border to the mountain and forested area. Located at almost 1,000 m asl, Sirmiano can be reached via a road from Nalles.

An absolute must-do is an excursion to the S. Apollonia church, dominating a porphyry hill. The little church was constructed on ancient settlement ground in the 12th or 13th century, which is testified by a bronze bracelet that has been found in this area. Amazing is the panoramic view on the surrounding mountains: in the south you can admire the rough Dolomite peaks, in the north east the Monte Ivigna and Cervina, in the north west the Monte Luco mountains as well in the west the Mendola mountain ridge with the steep rock face of the Monte Macaion.

Sirmiano di Sopra is by the way also one of the traditional places for Toerggelen in autumn. The landscape, characterised by mighty chestnut trees, is ideal for a walk and the local taverns serve delicious food such as roasted chestnuts and grape juice.
