Situated in the heart of the valley, surrounded by infinite fields and old farms, it is the largest village in the Val Senales. Madonna di Senales received its name from a miraculous image: According to legend of pilgrims, a small statue was discovered in 1304 and worshiped ever since. The sanctuary, erected on a rock, is a proud and beautiful sight. Many guests like to walk on the St. Mary's pilgrimage way, which leads directly to the sanctuary. Not far away you’ll find the ArcheoParc Val Senales, with a direct view on the discovery site of the "Iceman" - "Ötzi". In South Tyrol's first interactive archaeological museum, you can get a detailed view on how these people lived 5,300 years ago. The museum shows the New Stone Age through statements, pictures, movies and articles. On the outside area of the museum, the visitors can experience in reconstructed huts, what Ötzi's contemporaries needed to achieve in order to survive - baking bread, archery, pottery and the processing of flint and leather.
