The S. Spirito chapel, the show minery and the climatic centre are the main attractions of Predoi, the northernmost municipality of South Tyrol

The municipality of Predoi has got about 650 inhabitants and comprises the homonymous chief village as well as Casere at the head of the valley. The municipal coat of arms of Predoi refers to the animated history of Predoi in the field of mining. In fact, already in the pre-historic period, copper was mined in this place, up to the year 1893, when the mine was closed down.

The location of Predoi has always been a strategic one, since it stretches in the surroundings of some of the most frequented ancient commercial checkpoints such as the Forcella del Picco or the Forcella del Campo. Today these ancient paths are mainly used by hikers and those who would like to experience the Vedrette di Ries-Aurina nature park. Monte Fumo, Cima Tre Scarperi, Gran Lovello and Pizzo Rosso are only some of the mountains of three thousand metres that surround the municipality and that are frequently climbed by experienced mountain climbers, both in summer and winter.

Also worth a visit is the visitors' centre of the Vedrette di Ries nature park, the show mine of Predoi and the climatic centre, where a very special climate counteracts respiratory problems. Also at the S. Spirito pilgrimage church you need to stop. Ask one of the inhabitants for the legend that ranks about this sacred building, before you start a wonderful hike on the mountains in the surroundings, or make a winter walking tour.
