Covelano

Covelano is a charcteristic village located at the foot of the Monte Tramontana.

The little hamlet of Covolano, village of about 500 inhabitants belonging to Silandro in Val Venosta, is located at 755 m asl, at the forested slopes of the Monte Tramontana. Situated on the right Adige riverside, it stretches at the northern border of the Stelvio national park.

Covelano conveys a very special atmosphere, of particular interest is the parish church dedicated to S. Martino, and the late-gothic cemetery chapel of S. Valburga, which are surrounded by the fruit orchards of the valley basin and the forests that stretch up to the Malga di Covelano. A little bit higher, there is the largest marble quarry of Europe, at 2,250 m asl.
