Places worth seeing

In and around Tiers/Tires, there are a number of castles, fortresses, chapels, churches and museums, waiting for your visit. The following only a few:

St. Zyprian and Justina chapel – Tiers.

This chapel was built in a Late-Romanic style during the 13th Century and is the oldest church in the valley. The altar is a treasure from an art-historic point of view. Its centrepiece depicts Cyprian and Justina, the patrons of the church.

Steinegg Museum.

It is especially worth seeing the Steinegg/Collepietra Folk Museum, which puts you on an unforgettable journey through Tyrol’s history. The old drawing rooms, bedrooms and work chambers offer vivid insight into the life of previous generations. Very precise details are shown in the exhibits about farming life, deep-rooted religion, some almost forgotten crafts and professions, as well as painful memories of the war. This museum is particularly unique due to its valuable statues and other sacred treasures.
