What you shouldn’t miss out on in Chiusa

The top four attractions

You only know Chiusa/Klausen when you’ve seen...

The city of Chiusa, strongly characterised by the middle ages, is overlooked by the Säbener Berg hill, on whose peak Benedictine nuns lived in a monastery of the same name. The centre is distinguished by a network of streets paved with porphyry and ancient houses. The Municipal Museum is housed today in the former Capuchin monastery which is home to the Treasure of Loreto as well as special exhibitions. This collection of art works and sacred items was a present from Maria Anna, the Queen of Spain to her confessor, the Capuchin monk Gabriel Pontifeser. You must visit the Loreto chapel with its priceless altarpiece which was consecrated in 1723. The small city of Chiusa has always attracted artists, such as Albrecht Dürer, whose watercolour immortalizing the city went missing later. Follow in his footsteps by climbing the Tschanberg mountain and up to the stone that bears his name.
