BULLA - THE VILLAGE
The village of Bulla consists of a few houses and a church, however it is full of impressive historical and geological treasures. The area is part of the municipality of Castelrotto, but culturally it is a fraction of the Ladin community, therefore it is not uncommon to hear the ancient Ladin language spoken alongside Italian and German.
St. Leonard's Church is located in the center of Bulla and was dedicated to Saint Leonard, who was ordained the patron saint of cattle and livestock. The church was built in the thirteenth century in Romanesque style, and later in the eighteenth century Gothic and Baroque elements were added. May we recommend a visit to the old mills of Bulla, dating from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, where you can experience the ancient craft of the millers and their lifestyle.
