In Naturno, a sun-drenched municipality at the entrance to the Val Venosta, you can visit the famous S. Procolo chapel with respective museum.
The municipality of Naturno is located at 528 m asl, is embedded in grapevines and fruit orchards and has got some 4,500 inhabitants. The first settlements date back to the Mesolithic period, which is testified by findings made in 1984 in the passage between Naturno and the Val d’Ultimo. Comprising the villages of Stava, Tablà, Cirlano and the village of Naturno, the municipality has become a popular holiday destination in the last years, also thanks to the variety of possibilities on two sides of the valley.
If you would like to make a pleasant walk, choose the Roggia di Ciardes or the Roggia di Stava. However, if you prefer mountaineering in higher areas, we recommend a walk to the Malga di Naturno or a mountain tour to the Guardia Alta. Also very popular is the cycling track Via Claudia Augusta, ideal for the whole family. Thanks to Val Venosta train station, Naturno is an ideal starting point for a tour to the upper Val Venosta, and of course also to thermal city of Merano.
Our tip: due to the sub-tropic conditions at the Montesole, the famous Riesling grapes flourish even at an altitude of 900 m asl. These grapes are the basis for the Riesling wine, a tasty wine that you absolutely have to taste in the course of your stay.
