Lasa village

The marble village provides relaxation in the heart of a charming natural landscape, characterised by apple trees and fruit orchards.

The main place Lasa is located at 868 m asl, about 5 km from Silandro, towards Passo Resia. It is not hard to relax in this charming landscape that provides manifold possibilities for your leisure: hiking to the Punta di Lasa that is more than 3,000 m high, cycling on the numerous tracks in the surroundings or experiencing the Val Venosta from above, when doing hang-gliding. If you prefer calm activities, there is a contemplative trail along which wooden sculptures have been installed.

What we also recommend is a walk across the historic village. The parish church dates back to the 12th century and is dedicated to S. John the Baptist. What is particularly striking about this sacred building is the apsis is completely made of marble, of course the marble of Lasa that is extracted in the mountains above the village. In general, the marble of Lasa is omnipresent in the village. In the local stonemason school people can learn how to elaborate the “white marble”.

Our tip: A walk to the church hill of S. Sisinius, as this little chapel is one of the oldest churches of the Val Venosta.
