Valley of Mills in Longiarù in Alta Badia, South Tyrol
In Longiarù you can find a special historic attraction: the "Valley of the Mills", numerous mills along the Seres River.
In the past the mills represented an indispensable infrastructure for survival when the inhabitants of Alta Badia lived exclusively from what they could extract from the ground. But the last few years due to the economic development many things have changed and the mills were likely to be forgotten.
Thanks to renovation operations there are still about 30 mills in the valley. They are only operated to demonstrative purposes but worth a visit in any case. On a 1.5 km long path you can discover the recently restructured mills along the Seres River and visit them from close up. Dive into the history and become part of an ancient culture.
