Prato alla Drava

Prato alla Drava is located at the Italian-Austrian border and is an ideal starting point for a day trip to Lienz - also by bicycle

Prato Drava, this is how the village at the border between South Tyrol and East Tyrol is called, which makes part of the municipality of San Candido, at 1,160 m a.s.l. Prato Drava has got 320 inhabitants, the parish church is dedicated to S. Nicolò. Prato alla Drava also boasts a particular sacred building, which is the Loreto chapel, constructed in the style and form of the original chapel of Loreto.

In Prato alla Drava, the church is not the centre of the village, like in many other places, but it is located on a panoramic hill and reachable via a steep via crucis. The hiking and skiing area Monte Elmo provides a wide range of possibilities, the whole year round. Also winter walking, snow shoeing and cross-country skiing are popular activities.

Of course Prato alla Drava is also an ideal starting point for a tour to East Tyrol, e.g. to Lienz, which can by the way also be reached by bicycle. The Drava Cycle Path stretches from San Candido to Lienz in East Tyrol. A rainy day? Shopping in Lienz!
