The famous little church in Santa Caterina/St. Kathrein is situated on a rise in Avelengo/Hafling and can be seen from far away in Merano and Environs. The Romanesque church has its origins in the 13th century and features well-preserved frescos from the 14th century. Fantastic views of the city of Merano/Meran as well as the Texelgruppe range can be enjoyed from the church.
On the MEBO (Highway Bolzano–Merano) you reach the slip road signposted MERANO SUD, follow the road to Merano, then on the right hand side in direction to Avelengo/Hafling, follow the street until the parking lot in Avelengo village (below the parish church).
