Cornedo village

On a sun-drenched low mountain range, only a stone’s throw from provincial capital, there is the village of Cornedo.

The village of Cornedo, located at 510 m asl, can be reached in a car drive of a few minutes only from Bolzano. The village with its less than 100 inhabitants extends in sunny location. The road leading from Cardano to Cornedo is characterised by several hairpin bends snaking across vineyards and chestnut forests.

A particular attraction in the village is located high above the valley entrance of Val d’Ega. The castle, constructed in the 13th century, mainly consists of donjon, great hall, castle chapel, residential tower and circular walls with crenels. Since 1973 the castle is owned by Christoph von Malaise and can be visited in the months April to October. Book in advance in the townhall of Cornedo.
