San Lorenzo di Sebato

Excursions to San Michele Castle and along the Archaeological Path will show you San Lorenzo from its most beautiful side

The most frequent visitor to San Lorenzo di Sebato is the sun - the wide valley basin in which the municipality is located then merges into the sunny slopes at the entrance to the Val Badia, into the forests below the Val Pusteria Sun Road and into the little villages next to Brunico. Sebatum is also one of the words that characterise the market town: It is a Roman road station. Today, the Mansio Sebatum Museum with the adjoining Archaeological Panorama Trail tells about it, the only museum about the Roman period in South Tyrol.

Let's start in the main village: Here at the confluence of the Rienza and Gadera rivers, the cobbled village square with its colourful houses and the St. Laurentius Church with its disparate towers forms the centre of the municipality. Above it you can see the summit of the Plan de Corones, the hiking area with museums and action highlights in summer and South Tyrol's largest skiing area in winter. The bus takes you to the valley station in Riscone. Then the journey continues to the entrance of the Badia Valley, where districts such as Floronzo, San Martino, Palù, Mantana, Elle and - the most distant - Onies can be found. In between is the well-known pilgrimage site of Santa Maria di Sares.

Historical buildings such as San Michele Castle, the Hebenstreit Residence and Badia Castle with its monastery tell of earlier centuries, of proud castle lords and cultural masterpieces. The hiking paths between the flower meadows and fields in the valley basin lead from one place to the next and are also nice excursions for cyclists. Castelbadia, pictured here, extends like the hamlets of Campolino and Fassine below the Val Pusteria Sun Road. The last small villages are already on the way towards the Valle Isarco - Kniepass - and to the Plan de Corones: Winter hikes and one of the tobboggan runs in the Val Pusteria start from Santo Stefano on the slopes of the mountain. If you want to enjoy cross-country skiing, you can try out the circular track of the Riscone Sports Park.
