10 meditational spots are found along the side of the path until we reach the "Franziskus and Klara" chapel. By entering the symbolic gate near the car park you enter a new world. Furthermore, those who hike this path in silence will have a rich experience. The chapel is open day and night. The Liturgy of the Word (religious readings) can be celebrated by groups without asking beforehand. Any plan to celebrate the Eucharist (communion) should be reported to the "service for youth organisation", tel. + 39 0474 678119 or the priest´s office Taufers, tel. +39 0474 678060
