San Martino in Passiria

In the heart of the Val Passiria, there is the village of San Martino, considered the largest village of the valley.

The municipality of San Martino in Passiria is located in central Val Passiria and has got about 3,100 inhabitants. Located in the Gruppo di Tessa nature park, also the villages of Saltusio, Sorgente, San Martino, Valclava, Vallone, Montaccio and Cresta belong to the municipality. The parish church is dedicated to S. Martino and dates back to the 12th century. Round this church, the village started growing.

In and round S. Martino, there are seven of the famous Schildhof farms of the Val Passiria. If you would like to experience these special ancient buildings, we recommend you the Val Passiria Schildhof trail. Of course there are also plenty of other walks that are worthwhile, making you experience the intact landscape of the valley.

Tradition and culture are of utmost importance in the municipality. Once upon a time it used to be the seat of the Val Passiria painting school, which still today is remembered by numerous facades adorned with beautiful paintings in the village.
