S. Maurizio snuggles on a sun-drenched slope and stretches from the valley floor to elevated highs.
The picturesque village of S. Maurizio, also known under the name Sauders, is located in the south of the centre of Villandro at 780 m asl and consists of a series of farmsteads, snuggling on the sun-drenched slopes in the south of S. Stefano. The church of S. Maurizio, consecrated to S. Maurizio, has first been mentioned in 1406 and re-styled in 1670 in Baroque style. To attract attention today is the Baroque illustration of the fourteen Auxiliary Saints in the little round-arched niches.
Another worthy destination is Bagni Tre Chiese, where you can admire three ancient chapels. Also worthwhile is an excursion to the Alpe di Villandro, which boasts a large number of trails for all the family. On the chestnut trail you can reach the centre of Villandro in a pleasant walk.
Our tip: when you plan your stay in S. Maurizio in autumn, you absolutely have to do a typical Valle Isarco Toerggele evening.
