The village of Terento-Terenten is located on a high plateau above the Val Pusteria-Pustertal valley at an elevation of 1,210 m (3,970 ft.) directly on the Sun Road of the valley. As a result of its very bright location, the town is known as the sunny village of the Val Pusteria. And rightfully so. In the winter, the sun shines from 8:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M., and in the summertime, even as late as 8:00 P.M., thus making Terento the village with the longest sunshine in all of South Tyrol-Südtirol. The locals have a saying that “In Terento, the sun never sets.” The new Sunny Village Seal confirms the many hours of sun. The number 2285 represents the average number of sunshine hours per annum in Terento measured over the past five years!This idyllic vacation destination is very popular with guests, casting its spell so that many return again and again.
The brightness has a very positive effect upon the residents, too. In order to emphasize the status of the sun even further, so-called “natural solariums” have been built in Terento, the first of their kind in South Tyrol-Südtirol. They can be found at two different locations in the village and offer not only the opportunity for healthy vitamin D therapy and, at the same time, full deceleration from everyday life, but also a lovely panorama view of the Dolomites. Turn your face to the sun, and then you will leave the shadows behind you! (A blessing.)
