Following in the footsteps of the Romanesque
A journey through time into the world of column-eating demons and mermaids
In Romanesque churches, there are mythical creatures, mermaids, centaurs and column-eating demons. But what are these figures doing in churches? Follow in the footsteps of the "Alpine Road of Romanesque Art - Stairway to Heaven" in South Tyrol and the Canton of Grisons (CH) and learn more about this fabulous epoch. A journey in the footsteps of the Romanesque inevitably leads its visitors to unknown and hidden corners of South Tyrol. If you are interested in visiting places that have not yet been explored on TripAdvisor, a tour of discovery to South Tyrol’s Romanesque cultural sites is highly recommended.
