The mountain churches above Tesimo - Prissiano

The chapels and churches on the mountain foothills of Tesimo/Tisens and Prissiano/Prissian overlook the entire Val d’Adige/Etschtal Valley: St. Christoph church in Tesimo, St. Hippolyt on the basalt hill of Narano/Naraun, St. Nikolaus in the village of Caprile/Gfrill, St. Sebastian in Plazzoles/Platzers, St. Martin in Prissiano and St. Jakob in the village of Grissiano/Grissian; also the nearby St. Apollonia in Sirmiano/Sirmian. Located in the main village of Tesimo is the Pfarrkirche Maria Himmelfahrt parish church, with famous stained glass windows of the Augsburg school dating from 1520.

Contemplation trails lead the short distance to the St. Hippolyt church in Narano and the St. Jakob church in Grissiano. Near the mountain churches, visitors will find old restaurants such as the quaint Schmiedlhof in Grissiano, close to the St. Jakob church, or the Apollonia restaurant close to the St. Apollonia church in Sirmiano.
