From the valley bottom and from the banks of the Isarco (480 m), the sloping countryside becomes steeper and steeper until reaching Corno di Renon/Ritten (2260 m). Various vacation spots emerge among vineyards, chestnut forests, meadows and forests: Colma/Kollmann, St. Ingenuin/S.Ingenuino, Tre Chiese/Dreikirchen and Barbiano, the most important. Tranquil and peaceful little towns in which it is tradition to while away the hours.
Cultural marvels can be found from Colma to Briol, from the massive "Castel Forte/Trostburg" Castle above Ponte Gardena/Waidbruck up to the mysterious village of Tre Chiese/Dreikirchen: each town has its own art treasures.
In Colma, you can admire the Customs station built in 1483 by Duke Sigismondo, at the beginning of the "Kuntnerweg", the Royal Road that led to Bolzano/Bozen in the Middle Ages. Just a bit higher is Barbiano with its soaring bell tower. Climbing higher we come to Tre Chiese, an ancient sanctuary built around a spring, with three Gothic chapels.
