Val Passiria

La Val Passiria, northeast of Merano, falls in the province of Bolzano, in South Tyrol, and is delightfully nestled between the mountains of Tessa's group (west) and le Sarentino Alps (East).

It is divided into two parts with different climatic and landscape characteristics: the Lower Val Passiria andUpper Val Passiria.

Lower Val Passiria - Its main locality is San Leonardo, a splendid village on the confluence of rivers Passirius e Veltina which represents the boundary between the lower and the upper part of the valley.

Its climate (mild and pleasant throughout the year) and the minimal slope of its land favor the harmonious development of a typically Mediterranean vegetation that is beautiful in the long walks on the many paths that intersect throughout the territory.

Upper Val Passiria - Here, on the other hand, the profile of the land rises abruptly and dizzily, soon reaching important altitudes (such as the 2474 meters of altitude of the Turbot Pass and the 3480 meters of the very high top).
