The mountain village of Tagusa, far away from hustle and bustle, and nevertheless only a stone’s throw from Castelrotto, is inhabited by some 100 inhabitants. It nestles in the heart of lushly green meadows and forests stretching like a terrace above the Valgardena, Valle Isarco and the Brembachtal valley.
Close to the S. Maddalena church located on a hill in the centre, there is the former school of Tagusa. Once upon a time it one of the one-room schoolhouses of the mountain farms of South Tyrol in which children of various grades were taught all together. Today it hosts the School Museum of South Tyrol, exhibiting a large number of historical teaching and instruction material. If you visit Tagusa, come and see this special museum.
Today Tagusa does no more need an own school, as the road connections and means of public transport have moved the village closer to the main village of Castelrotto. By the way, from Tagusa you can also enjoy a great view on the Valgardena valley, the Valle Isarco, the Sarentino Alps and even to Laion in the Valgardena valley.
