The Sr. Cyrilus path leads from Bressanone through the Europa Meditation Path to St. Cyril's Chapel. 1238 this church was first mentioned. 1654 the Romanesque nave was extended with a choir. The interior is baroque today in large part, but there are also some medieval frescoes preserved. The Europa Meditation Path was established in 1993. The eight reflection points are dedicated to Christian Europe and his saints.
