Discovering Scena

Scena and culture simply belong together. The Romanesque St. Martinskirche church, dating to the year 1200, is the oldest local work of sacred art in Scena above Merano. The most impressive monument is nonetheless Schenna Castle. Its superb mausoleum is carved from red sandstone. Te castle was purchased by the Archduke Johann of Austria and remains the property of his heirs, the Counts of Merano, to this day. Another contemporary witness is the original rotunda of St. Georg which retains well-preserved 14th-century frescoes.
