Vila di Sotto

From Vila di Sotto you can take relaxing walks that lead you to the Greiter Wayside Shrine called “Greiterstöckl” or to Ried

The counterpart to Vila di Sopra above Perca is Vila di Sotto (Unterwielenbach) below the Val Pusteria state road. It is a small village characterised by agriculture and extends down into the gorge of the Rienza river. This area of the river is protected as the Rienza Floodplains and forms a valuable landscape for animals and plants at the edge of the water. Right next to it is another district: Rio Liccio with its approximately 30 inhabitants and the old carpenter's workshop.

Vila di Sotto is passed by the "Pusterbike" Cycle Path, which is a section of the extensive South Tyrolean cycle path network. You can explore the whole of South Tyrol by bike by following the Val Pusteria Cycle Route to Brunico and on to Fortezza, where you can continue to the Brennero Pass or to Bolzano, Merano and the Val Venosta. From Bolzano, a cycle route branches off to the south of South Tyrol with Lake Caldaro, and from Brunico one branches off to the Valli di Tures and Aurina - so with enough time, the beauties of the region can also be discovered on two wheels.

One kilometre, i.e. a 10-minute walk, separates the village with its Trinity Chapel from the main village of Perca. There you will find shopping facilities and a library, cafés, the town hall and the colourful trains of the Val Pusteria Railway. Next to the train station is the valley station of the Plan de Corones Cable Car: With well over 100 km of pistes, it is the largest skiing area in South Tyrol and is known for its Black Five Challenge. Due to the connection to the Dolomiti Superski carousel, the Sella Ronda is also included, the famous round trip of the mighty Sella massif on skis.
