Tanas

The hamlet of Tanas at 1,450 m a.s.l. is the only built-up area at the Montesole of the Val Venosta.

The idyllic mountain village of Tanas belongs to the municipality of Lasa and is located on the slopes of the Montesole in the Val Venosta valley. The name of the village probably derives from the Latin term “montanasticus”, which means mountain village. Only in 1968/69, the village was made up by a road and connected to Lasa in this way.

The surroundings of the village is ideal for walking, from romantic promenades to challenging mountain tours. Regarding historic-cultural attractions, Tanas has also got some sights to offer: the parish church is dedicated to the heart of Jesus and is located at the village border. A little more distant, there is the S. Pietro church of the year 1769. A contemplative trail with stations of the cross leads, however, to the S. Pietro church.

Our tip: the panoramic road of Tanas provides an impressive view of the high-Alpine region between the Ortles and the Passo dello Stelvio.
