In the many fortresses and castles of the adjacent villages art, painting and handicraft play an important role. Picturesque walking paths, once used by pilgrims, merchants and knights that traversed the valleys and passes, lead you to historical sites of interest. You will also find peasant traditions of the region captured in Lana's many museums.

Among the mansions, monasteries, monuments and historic art works of past times modern life finds its way through. For example the South Tyrolean Sculpture Walk Trail presents contemporary art along the irrigation channels and walking paths in and around Lana.
