The medieval village of closed with its narrow lanes is characterized by the typical atmosphere of South Tyrol, and is known as the "city of Dürer". Several centuries ago was the scene of a lively artistic life and the great master Albrecht Durer lived precisely in this beautiful village during his journey to Italy in 1494.

The crenellated facades of buildings, the large bay windows, the coats of arms of the inns fascinate anyone who wants to get lost in its narrow alleys, who find breath only near the two main squares, the Church Square and Tinne Square.
