Chiusa: the charm of the Middle Ages in Valle Isarco

Chiusa lies on the benches of the Isarco river, between Bolzano and Bressanone, in an enchanting landscape overlooked by the imposing complex of the Sabiona Convent and by the Dolomites and the Sarntal Alps.

Chiusa is known as the "town of artists" and is included in the list of the "most beautiful villages in Italy". It combines the charm of its old medieval center, with its lanes and its monuments, with the beauty of the surrounding landscapes, among vineyards, chestnuts and forests.
There are endless historical buildings, such as the Apostle Church, the Capuchin Church, the imposing parish church and the old Capuchin convent, which hosts the City Museum with the Treasure of Loreto, a precious collection of sacred and artistic objects. Halfway between Chiusa and the hamlet of Lazfons you can admire the Gernstein castle.

Over the village there is one of the oldest pilgrimage destination in South Tyrol, the Sabiona Convent also called the "Tyrolean acropolis", charming not only for its beautiful architecture and for the art treasures it preserves, but also because of its panoramic position.

Green slopes, chestnut woods, plateaus and imposing peaks offer many hiking opportunities. For example along the Ketschnweg (sweet chestnut) trail, from Varna to Bolzano.

Gudon, the picturesque village

Just 2 km from Klausen/Chiusa lies Gudon, one of the most typical villages in this area. Gudon owes its nickname 'village on seven hills' to the hills on which it stands. There are several sites of historical and cultural interest, such as:

  • St Martin's parish church
  • Summersberg Castle used as a private residence. It cannot be visited.
  • Privately owned Koburg Residence
  • Gudon Museum
  • Residence Hohenhaus housing the Archaeological Museum and library.
