Fiè di Sotto

The main village of Fiè allo Sciliar is over-towered by the steeple of the Assumption parish church.

Fiè di Sotto is the centre of the municipality of Fiè allo Sciliar. The village square, the parish church as well as the cultural hall and town hall are located in this village. Fiè di Sotto boasts some 500 inhabitants and is located at 870 m asl between the villages of Fiè di Sopra and Peterbühl. The village is surrounded by the Fiè round trail “Völser Rundweg”.

The Assumption Church was constructed in the period of time between 1515 and 1570 by Leonhard von Völs. His main aim was to build a higher and larger church steeple than the one of the neighbouring village of Castelrotto, and he succeeded. Only when the inhabitants of Castelrotto built a new, sovereign steeple of almost 90 metres in the 18th century, Fiè allo Sciliar could no longer compete. After a fire in the roof of the steeple of Fiè di Sotto, however, it had to be renewed. The new octagonal steeple was topped with an onion-domed roof. Also the interior boasts numerable testimonies of the Baroque and Rococo period.
