Parcines Gateway to the Texelgruppe Nature Park

The historical village of Parcines/Partschins lies on a sunny south-facing mountain slope in the Texelgruppe Nature Park, where the Vinschgau Valley and the Merano/Meran districts meet. The picturesque landscape surrounding the village is dotted with old farmhouses and manors. Most notable of these is Stachelburg Castle, a typical 13th Century Tyrolean fortress.
