Fortezza and Mezzaselva

Twice the wanderlust

Fortezza and Mezzaselva are situated on the old Brenner road. Emperors and kings have always been passing through: When they rode to coronations in Rome in the Middle Ages, and when soldiers and armies marched from North to the South, they had to cross the Brenner and therefore pass through Fortezza and Mezzaselva.
Today the valley cycle path from Brenner to Bolzano runs through both of these holiday destinations. Also worth seeing are the fortress Fortezza, the climbing crag above the fortress and Lago di Pontelletto, an insider’s tip for people seeking relaxation and one of the most beautiful mountain lakes in South Tyrol.

The village of Fortezza with approx. 1000 inhabitants was named after the impressive fortress Fortezza which was built from 1833 to 1838. Its origins, however, date back more than 4500 years. Already 2500 BC there was a small settlement at this site.

Mezzaselva is part of the municipality of Fortezza and has around 200 inhabitants. Originally, Mezzaselva was a parish of its own and Fortezza one of its parts. In 1940 Fortezza was designated as the main village and gave its name to the municipality. The hamlet of Mezzaselva became a part of Fortezza. San Martino church was recorded in Mezzaselva as early as 1345.
