The village is characterised by the S. Ingenuino and S. Albuino church.

Sant’Ingenuino, also called Saubach, makes part of the municipality of Barbiano and is located, with its 33 inhabitants, at 800 m asl high above the valley floor of the Valle Isarco. The Rio Ingenuino runs through the village, the church of which is dedicated to S. Ingenuino and Albuino. The church dates back to 1398, even if the selection of the patron saints might indicate an older age. If you would like to visit the church, ask for the key at the nearby Gasserhof farm.

Sant’Ingenuino is also a good starting point for hikes, many attractions in the surroundings can be discovered on foot. You can for instance walk to Bagni Trechiese or promenade on the chestnut trail, taking you to one of the traditional Buschenschank taverns, where you can enjoy a pleasant Toerggele evening. A hike to the waterfalls of Barbiano is likewise recommendable, also can you scale the Monte S. Ingenuino.

Our tip: experience Sant’Ingenuino on the Alta Via trail, which has been established in 2005. Schedule about 2 hours of walking for this route.
