Some of the most charming buildings of Appiano and surroundings are churches, most of which date back to a long time ago.

Undoubtedly they belong to the South Tyrolean cultural assets. The churches of Appiano are particularly important and closely related to tradition and customs of the inhabitants of Appiano. Important feasts are still celebrated according to religion. Associations such as music bands and choirs, Schuetzen or fire brigades arrange these celebrations and provide them a structure. Also processions are particular happenings for the people living in the village.
