Gudon, Lazfons, Pratello, Verdines and the artistic city of Chiusa form the homonymous municipality, located in the heart of the Valle Isarco. Vineyards and chestnut forests snuggle on the sunny slopes and form a unique ensemble together with rock spurs, scattered farmsteads, lushly-green pastures and lovely villages. The Alpi di Sarentino on the one side, a great view to the rough Dolomite peaks on the other side make Chiusa one of the most varied holiday destinations of South Tyrol.
The heart of the city is the Medieval city of Chiusa in Valle Isarco, which is considered one of the most charming places throughout Italy. Castel Sabbiona is undoubtedly a highlight which deserves a visit not only for its unique location and his history as former bishop's seat. A walk on the chestnut trail, historic mansions such as the residence Koburg and Summersberg Castle as well as a mountain tour to the Santa Croce di Lazfons must also be part of your holiday programme. What you should not miss at all in the golden autumn of the Valle Isarco is a traditional Toerggele evening. In order to experience the Toerggele atmosphere, join events such as the Chestnut Days or the so-called "Gassltoerggelen", an autumn event in the alleys of Chiusa.
By the way, Chiusa is one of the "Borghi più belli d'Italia", small, mostly medieval centres of outstanding historical and cultural interest. It is precisely for this reason that the association that maintains this list gave Chiusa the title "The little artist's town on the Isarco river".
