San Candido in the Alta Val Pusteria
   
San Candido is locadet at the border with Austria in a particular favorete location, at the center of the Natural Parc of Sesto, surrounding of important alpine traks, deep lakes and massive. This landscape offers in summer and also in winter a lot of possiblities for the free time. 2000 years ago the Val Pusteria is already crossed from one of the greater Romanesque roads, the way of the medieval commerce called "Road of Alemagna" the street node of the Val Pusteria.

   
Worth seeing places in San Candido:
   

The Collegiata di San Candido is the best example of building in Romanesque style in the region of the eastern Alps . The church caught his defintive aspect to 1280; the bell tower instead to the years comprised between 1320 and 1326. The monumental works wall remember them the style of the fortresses of cross and the numerous fortified citadels to you that they came constructed to the time of the Hohenstaufen. To the inside of the church the group of the crocifissione is found that is one of the more important works of the high Medieval art.

   
The Parish Church of San Michele originally built in Romanic style dates to the 12th Century, renovation performed after 1735 transformed it into the Baroque but we see today a lot of ornamentation that recalls the period of Rococo. This Church included among the highest expressions of Tyrolean Baroque.
   

The characterizing element of the church of the Franciscans is constituted from the reduction to the essential thing, the simplicity and the sobriety of the constructive lines. The church of the convent, consecrated in the 1697 from Prince Vescovo of Bressanone was planned from the Franciscan friar Vitus Rastpichler of Ötztal . After the entrance stands the small Chapel of Saint Anthony annexed to the nave destined for solitary meditation. The altars we see today are all graceful examples of Rococo style.

   

The Chapels of Außerkirchl
Three chapels were built, one inside to the other. T he Chapel of Christ's Passion , the Chapel of Altötting and the thirt one the Chapel of the Holy Sepulchre .

   

Near of San Candido, on the hill of Versciaco is cocated the parochial church dedicated to Saint Maddalena. The church was constructed from the juweler Andrä Firtaler. He adapts the church to Gothic style.

   

In the parliamentary part of Innichen, Winnebach, is the see-worthy parish church of di San Nicolò. As church patron is here the water patron is S. Niccolò , whose patronage is often invoked in places subject to the mercy of raging streams provides protection to the parish community, which even today does not consider itself entirely out of harm's way.

   

The m useum of the Collegiate Church of San Candido is dedicated to "Popular devotion during the Baroque Period". Hold his works from the six centuries, from the Gothic to the neo-Romanic. Documents illustrating the history of the Collegiate church: originally is the work room used by the maestri.
