Village of Santa Maddalena is located in the rear part of the Funes valley at 1.339m above sea level and has about 370 inhabitants.
The Baroque, onion-domed Church of St. Johann in Ranui was built in 1744 and dedicated to Saint Johann Nepomuk Bohemia (1345 – 1393).
After the St. Johann church, I passed through a kind farmer’s farm, and enjoyed some hiking on the narrow path.
The church dedicated to St. Magdalene is located in a place where sacrifices to the pagan gods took place, probably since prehistoric times. The first building is mentioned in the chronicles of the year 1394, of which only the church tower remains.
The interior of the church is characterized by Baroque elements. The altar shows St. Magdalene, to her sides the sculptures of Saint Peter, John the Baptist, John the Evangelist and Saint Jerome.
The village is really tranquil. But I have to go to the next destination Bolzano.
