Barbiano village

An inclined steeple characterises the main village of Barbiano in the sunny Valle Isarco.

“The village with the inclined steeple”, this is how the village of Barbiano is often referred to. In fact Barbiano, located at 830 m asl, boasts a parish church with a steeple that apparently lists. With a hight of 37 metres, its top is inclined about 1.57 m and it is therefore more inclined than the famous Torre di Pisa. The main village of the municipality has got 650 inhabitants and has always been a popular holiday destination.

A summer resort par excellence is Bagni Trechiese, which can only be reached on foot. It consists of buildings that are several hundred years old as well as three Gothic chapels connected to each other. This is by the way also the place where Christian Morgenstern and Sigmund Freud sojourned. Worth noticing is also the accommodation Briol, constructed in the Bauhaus style. Underneath there are several buildings of the Austrian architect Lois Welzenbacher.

Moreover we don’t want you to miss out the waterfalls of Barbiano. The Rio Ganda river, emptying into the Isarco river at Colma, cascades down into the valley, forming a series of cascades with a drop heigh of up to 85 metres. The waterfall trail, taking to these natural monuments, is a wild-romantic trail starting at the edge of the village.
