Where the Gadera river flows into the Rienza and then through the entire Val Pusteria valley, the Pflaurenzer Köpfl hill rises up

The peaceful village of Floronzo (Pflaurenz) is the lowest component locality of San Lorenzo di Sebato. However, this valley depression between the Val Pusteria valley and the Val Badia valley has become known for something else in recent years: The new wide entrance to the Val Badia, which is supposed to better direct traffic and avoid waiting times, was realised, among other things, through a tunnel under the so-called Pflaurenzer Köpfl.

At the entrance to the village rises the Rosary Chapel, where the Forest Christmas was once celebrated. In the village itself, in addition to the bus stop and the shops that can be found in every small village, there is also a wax drawing mill and the Leitner Mill, a family business in its 4th generation. The stone mill is still powered by water today: It offers a large selection of freshly milled flours, whole grain flours, cereals, flakes, seeds, legumes, dried fruits and spices.

Near Floronzo rises the Pflaurenzer Köpfl, a hill covered by the Klosterwald forest. The Klosterwald Chapel there was built in memory of those who fell in the Tyrolean freedom fights of 1809 and 1813, but residents were probably already buried here in the Middle Ages, during the plague. It is a small recreation area that is ideal for a leisurely morning or evening stroll. The Santa Maria di Sares Pilgrimage Church, an idyllic spot in the middle of the forests, and San Lorenzo itself are also worth a visit. Although the local public transport is well developed, the one kilometre to the main village can also be reached on foot or by bike on the "Pusterbike" Cycle Path in a few minutes.
