The many faces of culture.
The eye sees what it wants to see.
Naturns, just 15 minutes from the spa town of Meran, is set in the heart of the Vinschgau valley. A sea of flowers in the springtime, velvety green in the summer, perfumed orchards in autumn, this area is a holiday paradise, for one and all.
Abbeys, castles and palaces with an eventful history together with old rural traditions give the valley a distinctive flavour. Priceless historical works of art such as the early Christian St. Prokulus Church in Naturns with the oldest frescoes in the German speaking world are a must-see for all art lovers.
Around Naturns and in South Tyrol, there are many festivals and cultural events so rich in tradition that they deserve an extra holiday just for themselves.
