30/09 - 01/10/2017: South Tyrolean Speck festival
South Tyrolean Speck cured ham is unique in the world and one of the most important specialities of the province. In its honour the idyllic Valle di Funes, the home of mountaineering legend Reinhold Messner, organises an annual fête. The picturesque village of Santa Maddalena with its romantic church and the peaks of Odle in the background is the perfect place for this occasion. In addition to Speck, regional customs, culture, tradition and a varied music programme are showcased. It goes without saying that other typical South Tyrolean products are also served, such as wine, bread, cheese or apples.
