S. Giacomo Legend Trail

S.Cristina Gherdëina/S.Cristina Val Gardena/S.Cristina Gherdëina/St.Christina in Gröden, S.Crestina Gherdëina/Santa Cristina Val Gardana, Dolomites Region Val Gardena
from center

According to the legend, a young local inhabitant, Count Jakob von Stetteneck, let it build in the middle of the woods in gratitude for coming back alive from Santiago de Compostela. He dedicated it to Saint Jakob, the protector of all hikers.

Tradition holds that the S. Giacomo church is the oldest one of the whole valley, since its own origin goes back to the 12th century. In historic-artistic terms, its Gothic frescos in the presbytery and the paintings from the 16th century near the pulpit, which represent scenes of the legend, are valuable and unique.
