Un castello bellissimo contornato dalle sue mura e dalle Alpi della Val Venosta, purtroppo non siamo riusciti a visitarlo all'interno per questioni di tempo... ma sicuramente sarà da ritornarci appena ne avremo l occasione.

Beautiful castle but unfortunately we could not visit it inside because it was closed but very suggestive and a view of the peaks of the Val Venosta ... to return as soon as we have the opportunity

Wonderful castle, spacious rooms with great acoustics - top location for singing days, cultural courses, exams, etc. Make sure you plan a tour of the castle! A wide range of supporting programs in the region: a marble tour in Lasa is recommended. Rooms (especially single) in the guest house are also quiet, clean, pleasant and functional. Cooperation with the course organization is extremely professional, personal and efficient. All in all, Goldrain Castle is a very recommendable address - we'll be back soon!

The Church of the Holy Cross

The church of the former Franciscan monastery was built probably between 1515 and 1520. It is located in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Old Rauma. The church stands by the small stream of Raumanjoki (Rauma river).

The exact age of the Church of the Holy Cross is unknown, but it was built to serve as the monastery church of the Rauma Franciscan Friary. The monastery had been established in the early 15th century and a wooden church was built on this location around the year 1420.

The Church of the Holy Cross served the monastery until 1538, when it was abandoned for a hundred years as the Franciscan friary was disbanded in the Swedish Reformation. The church was re-established as a Lutheran church in 1640, when the nearby Church of the Holy Trinity was destroyed by fire.

The choir of the two-aisle grey granite church features medieval murals and frescoes. The white steeple of the church was built in 1816 and has served as a landmark for seafarers.
