Customs and traditions daily at home over Merano

Customs and traditions in Parcines/Partschins are closely bound up with the Christian faith and the Catholic Church in particular, with solemn religious processions taking place throughout the year. In the run-up to Easter, palm branches are braided and on Easter Sunday children receive a platted cake shaped in the form of a chicken or rabbit from their godparents, known as a Fochaz.

On the third Sunday after Pentecost the Sacred Heart of Jesus is celebrated throughout South Tyrol. Visible from a distance, fires are ignited on the hills commemorating the local resistance against the historic invasion by the French army. In the third week of September the annual transhumance of livestock from the Zieltal Valley is a traditional event of note.
