The mountain village is located along the curvy road up to the Passo di Eores and Passo delle Erbe, two South Tyrolean mountain passes

7 km separate the Cathedral Square and the Bressanone Arcades from one of the remotest districts of the town: Eores (Afers). Here, on the slopes of the Colle Libero hill, the town life is far away. Only splendid nature awaits you. The village consists of the settlements of San Giacomo, Plancios and Eores di Dentro and is name-giving for the mountains rising above the Val d'Eores valley: The Odle di Eores are part of the world-famous Odle Group, which characterises the area between the Val Gardena and Val di Funes valleys and gives them its unique mountain silhouette.

Eores has two churches: In the main village there is the St. George Church, in San Giacomo, however, the St. Jacob Church. The small centre stretches around the Church of St. George and consists of a kindergarten, some farms, shops and accommodation facilities. If you drive the road further up, it reaches its highest point at the Passo delle Erbe at almost 2,000 m and at the Passo di Eores. Afterwards, the road descends into the Ladin Val Badia or the Valle di Luson.

This region of course is best-suited for excursions into nature. Hikes lead to Mariahilf on the Colle Libero hill or on the Eores Panoramic Trail to Eores di Dentro (Hinterafers), with fantastic views on the Odle di Eores Group and Mt. Sass de Putia. In winter, the Vallazza Ski Lift takes you directly into the Plose Ski Area, where not only the longest descent down into the valley in South Tyrol, the 9 km long Trametsch, but also one of the longest sledge runs await you.
