Merano is the second biggest and second most important town in the Alto Adige. It stretches over a wide green valley on the right bank of the River Passirio and is encircled by lofty Alpine peaks. The town has many interesting sights to see, including the Gothic Cathedral, the fifteenth century Gothic Church of Santa Barbara, the Principesco Castle and Via dei Portici, in the heart of the old town, which is bordered with low porticoes under which there are many shops. There are many gardens, town houses, and hotels in the neoclassical and art nouveau styles. The modern part of the town extends from the road on the bank of the river to the suburbs of Maia Alta and Maia Bassa. The Winter Walk and the Summer Walk are very attractive. The new spa complex was opened in December 2005 and stands in parkland on the bank of the River Passirio. Modern and elegant, the centre offers indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a department dedicated to health and wellbeing, a sauna centre and a fitness section.
Thermal baths, mud baths, inhalation, hydromassage and pressure therapy.
