The health resort near Lana

Surrounded by forests, orchards and vineyards, Foiana/Völlan is located near Lana at 700m a.s.l.. Thanks to its pure air quality it has a long reputation as a health resort. Foiana is also a starting point for numerous walks and mountain bike trails in various directions. Following the autumn harvest, the chestnut season and traditional Törggelen festival is a time for convivial celebrations.

Castles and fortresses are interspersed with prehistoric relics, bearing witness to the ancient Rhaetian and Celtic settlements in the area. Around Foiana, trails lead up to traditional mountain hut, inns and taverns.

In 1977, a small peasant and agricultural museum was established in the health resort of Foiana and is open from Easter to All Saints Day in early November. The museum provides insights into the life and culture of the traditional Tyrolean communities of the mountain villages.
