The municipality of San Lorenzo is located in the middle of the Val Pusteria and stretches from 748 to 2,194 m. Its 3,400 inhabitants live in the villages of of Castelbadia, Santo Stefano, Sares, Mantana, Ronchi, Oines, Elle, San Martino, Palù and Floronzo. In the municipality, the Gadera and Rienza rivers join. Also the Plan de Corones is only a little distance away.
The Michelsburg and Castel Badia as well as several well-preserved farmsteads are the jewels of the municipality. From an archaeological viewpoint, San Lorenzo di Sebato is the most significant place of the Val Pusteria, as in 1857 a Romanesque milestone was excavated, which was handed over to the Ferdinandeum, while a duplicate milestone can be admired at the place of discovery. In fact, San Lorenzo used to be the centre of the Roman administration area Sebatum. Also remnants of residences and storages have been excavated in the municipality. A further attraction is the Sares pilgrimage church.
The cycling trail of the Val Pusteria is ideal for a cycling trip, the Val Pusteria train, however, perfect for a getaway and a journey across the green valley. In winter a ski bus runs between San Lorenzo and the Plan de Corones. What more could one want?
