Municipality of considerable fame and cultural tourism, Laces is situated in the central part of the Val Venosta, on the edge of Stelvio National Park, a unique place, with a mild climate and the lowest rate of precipitation of the whole valley, make it the ideal destination for relaxing holidays in close contact with nature.
The name, attested since 1185 as "Lacis" originated with the German "Latsche" (pine), which in turn descended from the Latin "laqueus" (tie).
Its rich history is reflected not only by the fact that the name Laces has been identified in documents dating back to 1185, but also by the discovery, in 1992, in the Church of Santa Maria in Colle, of a menhir dating back to the period of transition from the Stone Age to the Bronze Age.
Another interesting discovery from the literary point of view, moreover, was that of an original manuscript of the saga of the Nibelungs in Castle Obermontani and now preserved in the State Library in Berlin.
The large number of castles and fortresses in the area give the more discerning visitor the impression of being back in time and relive the feeling of the age of chivalry.
In this picturesque setting, you can make beautiful walks through the many apple orchards and along the paths taken from the old irrigation canals, as well as excursions in the mountain huts for visiting the many dairies and make a stop in the huts. During the Winter, the village of San Martino in Monte, at 1740 m. above sea level, offers hiking opportunities and it is possible to enjoy the panoramic view of the magnificent glacier group Olter, the Malga Tarres, where in 2005 took place the Bob Skiing World Cup.
