War memorial

War memorial

By express highway Rosenheim-Kufstein-Innsbruck-Brenner up to exit "Brixen", where you continue toward the Pustertal (Val Pusteria). After about 20 km on the Pustertal na-tional road, always heading toward Bruneck, you turn off to your right just before St. Lorenzen, into the Gadertal, heading towards Alta Badia. The SS244 carries you up to San Vigilio.


This monument to the victims of the two World Wars features a beautifully hand-carved cross made by local artist Carlo Obwegs who learned the art of wood carving in the Gardena valley and perfected his skills in several foreign countries. The war memorial crucifix is often described as his most important work.
