Glorenza

Glorenza, the smallest city of the southern Alps, is rich in historic jewels and surprises its visitors with its charming corners.

Glorenza was founded about 700 years ago, in the era of Meinhard II von Tirol. In the course of centuries, this town had an important role to place as a trade centre. Still today two important funfairs are staged righ there, the Bartolomeo market in August and the so-called „Sealamorkt“ in November.

As Glorenza has never grown beyond its murals, still today there are not more than 880 inhabitants. The city was able to preserve its historic character as Mediaeval town and is by the way considered an architectonic jewel: the circular wall with the three city towers and a series of fortified towers surround the charming alleys and corners, town houses of the 16th century and the arcades with their special atmosphere.

No wonder that Glorenza has repeatedly been chosen as film set. If you plan to spend your holidays in the Alta Val Venosta, you absolutely don’t have to miss out Glorenza. Also the Claudia Augusta cycling route stretches past the town gates. Take the opportunity and make a journey back in time in this lovely, Mediaeval market town.
