Monte San Pietro

Like the village itself, the Monte San Pietro Golf Club extends on the Regolo Plateau, which reaches as far as the south of South Tyrol

If you are looking for peace and relaxation, Monte San Pietro, a district of Nova Ponente amidst the meadows and forests of Mt. Regolo, is a charming destination: The high plateau extends as far as Aldino in the south of South Tyrol, where the road also leads. There you can find the Grand Canyon of South Tyrol, the Rio delle Foglie Gorge. In Monte San Pietro (Petersberg) itself, more precisely in the Wötschl Moos, a bog larch was found a few years ago, which stood here in the Iron Age around 7,000 years ago. Today it is on display in the Moor Larch Nature Museum in Lana near Merano.

In the centre rises the Church of St. Peter and St. Margaret, and on the other side of the road is the sports zone where the Monte San Pietro lift starts. The training lift is connected to a 600 m long ski slope, ideal for children and beginners. Not far away is the Monte San Pietro Golf Club: The 18-hole course was harmoniously integrated into the nature by Italian architect Marco Croce.

One of the most famous pilgrimage sites in the Alps is also only separated from Monte San Pietro by a mountain road. High above the Val d'Ega valley is the Madonna di Pietralba Monastery with its church, the "Cathedral in the Dolomites". On foot, the old pilgrimage path leads from Laives to Monte San Pietro and further on to this holy place: The path is lined with figures and sculptures. The village is also a popular destination in winter, from where several winter hiking trails start.
