This delightful little church sits in a meadow at the base of the magnificent Geisler mountains forming the perfect frame for your images. It is difficult to photograph up close due to restrictions on the access path but there were several points along the road...More

This little church with the Geisler mountain as backdrop is the most-photographed place of the Dolomiti mountains area. The church located at a large meadow where you can see just a few cows eating grass tranquilly. You are allowed to get into this meadow and...More

You've all seen the panoramic shots. A short visit to this tiny chapel will not disappoint! All the charming beauty is worth the effort to get here.

Since it's the most-photographed church in the world, why not go and help it maintain its status? Makes for a fun pastime while you wait for the bus to Brixen or Villnos since the church is ~3 minutes hike from the stop.

Sitting in the middle of a cow pasture, replete with actual cows and an occasional orange cat, this tiney church is framed by the Dolomite mountain and has painted-on "coins" in pink and other faux architectural detail in shades of pink and blue. The overall...More

This is a very nice little church. But to tell the truth, for me St Jakob / San Giacomo, another medieval church in the same valley, which I didn't find on Tripadvisor, was even more fascinating. If you like this and have some more time,...More
