The municipality of Aurina belongs to the most charming areas of South Tyrol.
The municipality of Aurina stretches from Campo Tures to the valley narrowing at S. Pietro/Aurina and comprises an area from 942 m to 3,378 m asl. Lutago, Cadipietra, S. Giacomo, S. Giovanni, S. Pietro and Rio Bianco belong to the municipality.
Inhabited by some 5,800 people, Aurina is located in the Vedrette di Ries-Aurina nature park. Characterising for this nature reserve are not only the 80 three-thousanders, but also the astonishingly beautiful farmsteads of former centuries, located in sun-drenched positions. Can you hear the mountains call? Sasso Nero, Gran Orecchio di Lepre and many more attract visitors from all over the world.
To attract attention in winter months, there are the skiing areas Klausberg and Speikboden. Other popular activities are winter walking and tobogganing. Those who prefer a visit to the museum, can visit the mining museum in Cadipietra.
