Capuchin Church - Hosted By

Not review yet

The church is dedicated to S. Anthony of Padua and was built around 1600 within the Castel Wendelstein estates of the Counts of Tyrol. It has a magnificent altar piece by Felice Brusasorci (1600), above the main altar, and examples of mannerism in the chapels of Maria Assunta and SS. Sebastiano and Giovanni in the first side chapel.

Via Goethe takes you to piazza delle Erbe, one of the main attractions of the town centre thanks to its colourful fruit and vegetable market (open throughout the week except on Saturday afternoon and public holidays) with its elongated and curved shape. The square has the fountain of Neptune, also called “the innkeeper with the fork” (Gabelwirt), by Joachim Reiss designed by Georg Mayr di Fiè (1745). On the opposite corner a plaque commemorates the “Al sole” hotel that had, amongst its guests, Wolfgang Goethe himself, Emperor Giuseppe II and the German philosopher and scholar Johann Gottfried Herder.
