Schernag

The small village of Schernag is located above Nalles and is part of the municipality of Tesimo.

Schernag is the name of the locality that belongs to Tesimo and is located in the north of Nalles, to which it is connected by a bridge. It is the only settlement of Tesimo that is located in the valley floor of the Val d’Adige, at the foot of the plateau of Tesimo-Prissiano. Despite of the fact that Schernag makes part of Tesimo, there is no direct access to the locality from Tesimo. No wonder that the lives of the 70 inhabitants is mainly concentrated in Nalles.

Above Schernag the rivers Rio di Grissiano and Rio di Tesimo join to form the Rio di Nalles. A worthwhile excursion destination you can reach from Schernag is Casatsch Castle, also called Pfeffersburg. Its name comes from the homonymous hill on which it was built in the 12th century. In summer it is by the way venue for several cultural events. On the edge of Nalles, where the road leads up to Tesimo and Prissiano, there is Stachelburg Castle and slightly above the Chapel of the Holy Cross (Nalserbachkapelle), idyllically surrounded by vineyards and fruit orchards.
