The lively pedestrian zone of Lana as well as the wild and romantic Gaul Canyon are situated in this locality.
Lana di Sopra is located at 313 m asl and boasts a lively pedestrian zone called Am Gries, which is the shopping mall of Lana, ideal for strolling about. Wine cellars and bars, fine food, restaurants as well as Mediterranean haute cuisine, the offer is manifold. Worth a visit ais also the Capuchin’s monastery with attached church on the way to Lana di Mezzo. What we also recommend is a little excursion the Braunsberg Castle dominating the entrance og the valley entrance of Val d’Ultimo. Surrounded by cypresses, this castle is today in the hands of the Trapp family.
This castle looks down upon the shady and romantic Gaul Canyon that provides refreshment on hot summer days. An impressive waterfall and a pending bridge, however, make the lovely ravine even more spectacular. By the way, also sculptures of the South Tyrolean Sculpture Path can be admired in the ravine. Other recommendable walks are the Roggia di Marlengo leading to Lana di Sopra, as well as the Brandis path, connecting Lana di Sotto and Lana di Sopra. If you aim higher, we suggest a ride with the Munte San Vigilio funicular with lower terminus in the north of the Valsura embankment.
The most famous citizen of Lana di Sopra is Johann Kravogl, which is considered to be the founder of the electric motor.
