Torre di Pozza
Torre di Pozza is the only example of a fort featured by Val di Fassa.
ATTENTION: The opening of cultural and tourist sites, access to them, to public transport and to the services described in these pages is governed by the containment measures put in place by the government authorities and the Autonomous Province of Trento to deal with the COVID-19 health emergency. The rules may vary over time and provide for the application of different security measures — from closure, to social distancing, to the mandatory use of personal protective equipment such as gloves and masks. We therefore ask you to consult the section Travelling safely on this website and to contact the managers directly for updated information on how to gain access.
Former summer-residence of a Tyrol-based noble family, Torre di Pozza is now private property and the only fortress featured by Val di Fassa, apart from the Corte de Fassia. Although it has since disappeared, the latter used to be a fort in Vigo as well as the seat of the Vicar of the Prince-Bishopric of Bressanone.
Square-shaped, Pozza tower features thick walls marked by narrow slits located under a sloping roof. Recent refurbishing works have helped make its structure lighter.
