Visitors will be surprised by the village’s many cultural offerings and by the multi-faceted scenery of the locality Villandro which is called Villanders in German and is situated in the holiday region Valle Isarco.
A place treasured for millenniums
The excavations in the centre of the village brought to light relics from the stone, bronze and iron ages, but also traces of Roman settlements. Today's Villandro was built on these foundations and offers its picturesque historic centre, old farms, cosy inns, and famous hotels surrounded by a landscape blessed by the heavens. The scenery is varied, from fruit orchards to bare rock, passing through vineyards, fields, chestnut forests, meadows, woods and Alpine pastures.
These natural wonders are especially prominent in the spring, when the white flowers on the plum trees burst into bloom and the snow-capped peaks sparkle over the valley. But they can also be enjoyed in the fall, when the broadleaf trees come alive with colour, the wine is bottled and stored in the cellar and you can eat chestnuts and speck together with "Nuie", the new wine. You can also take walks and hikes in all directions, always accompanied by a magnificent view over the valley and Dolomites.
