The main attraction of Lana di Sotto, located at 300 m, is undoubtedly its Maria Assunta parish church, which is one of the most beautiful late Gothic pieces of art of South Tyrol. Not only its modest outer appearance, the sandstone pulpit, a triumphal arch crucifix and the glass paintings in the choir windows as well as the late Gothic worship space make this church a real attraction, but also, or rather above all, the famous Schnatterpeck altar. This 14 m high and 7 m wide altar is considered to be the largest winged altar of the entire alpine area. From the end of April to the end of October you can join guided tours, it’s worth it.
A further striking sacred building in Lana di Sotto is the Romanesque Santa Margherita chapel on the slope above the village. Also recommendable is a walk on the Brandis promenade, leading to Lana di Sopra. Don’t hesitate to stop at the Larchgut residence, hosting the South Tyrol Museum of Fruit Growing, informing visitors about various fields of fruit-growing in an illustrative manner.
The 9-hole Brandis golf course, however, makes golf players’ hearts leap for joy. Looking down upon this green is the Brandis castle, a ruin that is also name-giving for the homonymous promenade. Lana di Sotto is also a perfect starting point for mountain bike tours. Romantic winter walks or a visit to the Christmas Market of Lana make your winter holidays in Lana a lasting experience.
