Tarres and its mountain pasture are the pearl of the Monte Tramontana.

Tarres, village of about 600 inhabitants in the municipality of Laces, rises at 854 m asl at the edge off the forest of the Monte Tramontana that stretches along the right Adige riverside. It is a characteristic village, even more precious due to the S. Michele parish church, the San Carpoforo church and the San Medardo church.

Above the village, only some minutes away, there is the lower terminus of the Malga di Tarres funicular, which makes you easily reach an altitude of 1,940 m asl, where numerous hiking tours start. You can for example walk the Jochwaal trail, that connects the Val d’Utlimo and the Val Venosta. Those who are experienced in mountaineering can scale the Orecchia di Lepre (3,257 m), which should be reserved to alpinists only (there are glaciated passages). This mountain dominates the village of Laces and provides a great view on the Venosta Alps and the Ortles mountain group.
