Morter

At the entrance of the Val Martello, there is Morter and the castles of Montani di Sotto and Montani di Sopra.

Morter, village of about 660 inhabitants in the municipality of Laces, rises at 729 m asl, at the entrance of the Val Martello. It is considered the real gate to the natural jewels of the Stelvio national park.

Due to the strategic position of Morter, there are also two castles, that is to say Montani di Sotto and Montani di Sopra. Also the S. Stefano chapel is located in this place, for its precious frescos it is considered the “Sistine Chapel of South Tyrol”. Worth visiting are also the Gothic parish church dedicated to San Dionisio and the romantic church of S. Vigilio.

It seems superfluous reminding that the Val Martello is an inexhaustible place for excursions, mountain tours and ski tours. By the way, only a stone’s throw from Morter, there is a skiing area that also offers cross-country skiing possibilities, located between the lake Gioveretto and the village of S.ta Maria in der Schmelz.
