Between Fiè and Presule, located at the foot of the Sciliar, there is the small village of Umes, starting point for hikes onto the Sciliar.
The Rio Sciliar cascades towards the Valle Isarco in the area of the Malga Seggiola. At its riverbank, at about 930 m asl, there is the little village of Umes, located exactly where the river separates the areas of Fié and Presule.
The centre of Umes is occupied by the S. Martino church. Constructed in the 17th century, this chapel belongs to the the Assumption parish church of Fiè. However, the number of inhabitants ran up to a total of 200 in the last decades.
Umes is also an ideal starting point for hikes in the area of the Sciliar and Fiè allo Sciliar. We recommend you either the pond of Fiè that can be reached along the circular walk “Umser Rundweg“, or a hike to the Hofer Alpl alpine pasture. Those, whoever, who prefer mountaineering in higher altitudes, can hike to the Rifugio Bolzano and the alpine pastures of the Sciliar mountain, belonging to the village of Umes in Fiè allo Sciliar.
