Silandro

Urban atmosphere, rural landscapes and unspoilt nature in the heart of the Val Venosta.

The market town of Silandro is situated at the foot of the massive detritic cone of the Rio Gadria, in the heart of the Val Venosta, to which it is also geographic, administrative and economic centre. The municipal territory comprises the villages of Corces, Covelano, Monte Mezzodì, Monte Tramontana and Vezzano and stretches from the sun-drenched fruit orchards in the valley basin to the peaks that delimits the Valle di Silandro in the north. Partially the municipality is by the way located in the Stelvio national park.

Even if the village has been first mentioned in 1077, the first traces of settlements date back to the Neolithic Age. The importance of Silandro, which still today is the juridical centre, is also testified by a series of castles (Castel Schlandersburg, Castel Schlandersberg), residences, convents and churches. The most striking church is the Gothic Parish church S. Maria Assunta. Its steeple is 97 m high and is considered the highest in Tyrol.

Of original rural origins, Silandro found its calling also by specialising in fruit-growing, while in the course of time it has become more and more important also in tourism. Silandro is a place that absolutely needs to be discovered. It does not only fascinate due to the urban atmosphere it conveys, but also as quiet place that is surrounded by a breathtaking mountain scenery that is ideal for those who love mountaineering.
