The church hill of the S. Martino church, the ancient Maria Assunta parish church and the new parish church represent the centre of the village. This is also where Castel Scena rises into the sky. Constructed in 1350 by Petermann von Schenna, the archduke Johann from Austria purchased this building, which still today is in the hands of his descendants. Also worth seeing is the mausoleum, in which the mortal remains of the archduke Johann and his family are preserved.
Due to the fact that the basin of Merano boasts a rather mild climate, also Scena benefits from the Mediterranean conditions, as it is located on slopes oriented towards south west. According statistics, Scena offers 2,000 hours of sun per year, ideal conditions for an unforgettable holiday as well as for hikes and mountain bike tours. Scena offers something for every taste, from pleasant walks on the Roggia di Scena (Waalweg) to the challenging tours to the Monte Cervina mountain. Moreover funiculars facilitate the ascend and make you enjoy high paths and walks on the alpine pastures.
Our tip: a visit to the Maria Assunta parish church, where precious frescos of 1400 have been laid open.
