Turn-by-turn directions

The set-off point is the historic village square of Castelrotto. From here, you pass under the right archway of today's town hall, former residence of the counts of Kraus, towards the Calvary hill. The path leads past two chapels to the so-called bowling square. Along the way, you will pass 14 stations with decorated porphyry plates representing symbols and themes of peace. After circling the Calvary hill and admiring the view over the village with its high church tower and the mount Sciliar in the background, return to the village square.
