  • The ancient monastery Säben (= Kloster Säben) stands on a steep cliff from which you have a stunning panoramic view over closed and on a good stretch of the Eisack Valley with its vineyards, orchards and distant peaks. This, combined with the historical and cultural value of the complex, amply justifies the visit, even better if made by climbing on foot from the village below. If we consider that the remains of the first bishopric back to sec. V-VI you will understand why the settlement, inhabited by Benedictine nuns, has exercised over the centuries a strong spiritual call for the entire Tirol. The monastic complex is not only spectacular scenic location and bold, but offers amazing spaces inside and various works of art. To get there walk directly from closed it follows the old route of the Via Crucis, otherwise you reach Velturno by car and from here or later from Pradello continue by foot along the easy and magnificent chestnut road (see review). Among other things, you can Hike, near Closed grant a pleasant refreshment stop and particularly "greedy" at Gasthof Huber (see review). For guided tours or any other information relating to the monastery is the excellent Tourist Office Closed in advance please ask. Anyway, as you may have guessed, Sabiona Abbey is a destination not to be missed in everyway.

  • See also dall'autostra. Is an imposing structure that dominates the town of Klausen. Striking up a climb that does understand the importance of the monastery and its history, indeed the history of places already important before Säben. Pretty steep climb faced calmly.
