Plata offers a remarkable natural monument: the earth pillars are a popular excursion destination for families.
Plata is one of the few places in the province of South Tyrol that offers earth pyramids. This natural monument emerged several hundred years ago as a natural consequence to an landslide, which at that time interrupted the carriage road between the Thalerhof farm and the hamlet of Aschbach. The earth pyramids are above all famous with families, as this natural phenomenon does not only make children’s eyes shine bright. The earth pillars can be reached in a short walk. Please use the parking spaces accounted for this purpose.
Plata is located at 1,400 m a.s.l. and is mainly agriculture-oriented.
What you also don’t have to miss is a mountain tour on the Montone, which is the local mountain of Perca. And the way back? Make a stop at the Gönneralm pasture, where you can enjoy local dishes.
