Directions

The "Via Lucis", the path of light, is South Tyrol's first meditation path, in which the events from Easter to Pentecost are depicted in 14 stations. The stations were designed by local artist Lukas Kargruber using meditative illustrations to encourage the faithful to draw hope and strength for their own lives from the Easter message of the resurrection.
