The Monte Ponente comprises the hamlets of Tiles, Gereut, Perara, Pinzago, Tecelinga, Scezze, Untereben and La Mara.
Monte Ponente, this is how the low mountain ridge on the west side of the valley basin of Bressanone is called, on the slopes of which the villages of Tiles, Greut, Perara, Pinzago, Tecelinga, Scezze, Untereben and La Mara snuggle. When you sojourn in this place, you benefit from the mild climate of the Valle Isarco. On the opposite side of the valley, the local mountain of Bressanone, which is the Plose, overlooks the city and surroundings.
The chestnut trail “Keschtnweg” in Tecelinga, the circular trail of Pinzago, a hiking tour to the Rif. Lago Rodella or the Monte del Pascolo, the Monte Ponente and its surroundings are ideal for walking tours for everyone. Also a walk to the romantic Cyrill chapel of Pinzago is worth it. La Mara, especially known for a Tyrolean freedom fighter, offers by the way a sun-drenched climbing garden.
By the way, in autumn you absolutely don’t have to miss out a traditional Toerggele evening in one of the typical taverns such as the Villscheiderhof or the Ploneshof farms, spoiling your palate with tasty dishes.
Our tip: the band Peter Mayr Pfeffersberg has got a very long musical tradition and is one of the most outstanding bands of South Tyrol. Maybe you can attend one of their concerts in your holidays?
