Bormio historical centre

In the past, Bormio was an obligatory crossroads for people who wanted to travel between the North and the South of Europe. And many powers were interested in controlling the Magnificent Terra, and consequently, its trade routes.

Precisely because of its strategic position, the Bormio area has always managed to remain fairly autonomous and rich. You will note this as you walk among the alleys and narrow streets of the historic center; a jewel where medieval remains are mixed with those constructed during the XIV-XVI centuries—the golden age of the Contado (semi independent towns, largely responsible for their own defense, with church leadership). The evidence of this golden age is in the palaces, towers, churches, and the symbol of the town, the Kuerc. Immerse yourself into the atmosphere of the town that was, for seven hundred years, a democracy in the heart of the Alps, in which innovation has only added the finishing touches, leaving intact the perspective and views of the past.
