Torre S. Margherita

The medieval tower Torre S. Margherita is what has remained of a fortified 13th century home. At that time there were overnight accommodations for pilgrims and brothers, including kitchen, cellar, granary and a stable for the animals.

There was also a church. However, the building was also used for several purposes, e.g. for defence against attacks on the surrounding houses. At the beginning of the 14th century, however, the home was abolished and the building passed into the hands of the bishops of Trento.

As usual in the 19th century, this building was also destroyed to make room for new buildings. Only the tower of the former church was left standing. This stone tower becomes narrower and narrower towards the top. Strange: the entrance gate is slightly elevated!
