San Martino di San Lorenzo

At the foot of a wooded hill in San Martino stands the historic Schwarzhorn Residence with its decorative corner towers

Two idyllic districts of San Lorenzo di Sebato are scattered over the hilly areterrain between San Lorenzo and the Val Badia: San Martino and Palù, both surrounded by meadows. Although many villages in this area can still be found away from the streams of visitors, seemingly forgotten by time, they have been known for a long time and can tell a history that goes back thousands of years. San Martino, for example, was already mentioned in documents in the 12th century.

The village church of San Martino (St. Martin), which was equipped with a Gothic vault in the 16th century, also dates from this time. It is of course dedicated to St. Martin. Another historical building in the village is the Schwarzhorn Residence, a square building with two corner cores and a round-arched door, which is easily recognisable. It was once built by the powerful Counts of Görz.

On the countless hiking paths you can discover the extensive municipality with its sights. Spiritual is the Way of the Cross to the Our Lady of Loreto Church in Santa Maria di Sares, historically interesting is the Mansio Sebatum Museum in the main village of San Lorenzo, and of special beauty is Castelbadia with its monastery, which presents itself in spring amidst flowering meadows. In winter, all kinds of sports are available around San Martino, including moonlight sledging in Santo Stefano and skiing on the famous local mountain, the Plan de Corones.
