Cultural landscape on a sunny plateau

In the past, the villages of Tesimo/Tisens, Caprile/Gfrill, Narano/Naraun, Plazzoles/Platzers, Grissiano/Grissian and the castle village of Prissiano/Prissian were popular summer destinations for the aristocracy and landowners. As a result, the area boasts many castles, palaces and noble villas surrounded by vineyards and chestnut groves. Many castles are still actively used today, such as Katzenzungen Castle, the home of the famous Versoaln vine.

Around Tesimo - Prissiano there are also several impressive churches, mountain churches and chapels, including St. Christoph and St. Hippolyt, St. Jakob in Grissiano and St. Apollonia in nearby Sirmiano/Sirmian, but also museums and historic cultural sites. The South Tyrol Classic vintage car rallye runs through the narrow historic center of Tesimo and Prissiano.
