Falzes is the main place of the municipality, this is where the Alta Via di Fundres high path starts and ends.
“Phalanza“, this is how Falzes was mentioned for the first time in 1.050. Already in the Roman Age, its sun-drenched location above the Val Pusteria was appreciated. As the village is situated at the foot of the lower mountain range, it is a popular starting point for mountain tours, such as on the Monte Sommo or Cima Bärental, which in winter is ideal for show-shoeing. If you prefer more comfortable walks, we recommend you the trail “le pietre raccontano“.
From a historic viewpoint, Castel Sichelburg is the most striking building, characterised by its tower-like form and its little bays decorating the façade. Worth mentioning is also the S. Cyriak parish church, rising in the shadow of wild chestnut trees. The romantic S. Valentino church, however, is located outside the centre and is a contemplative place in the green.
