Capella Granata

Karte ausblenden

The Capella Granata was built in 2013 and is perfect for those looking for a little peace and quiet. The shape of the chapel is reminiscent of garnet, which is native to the Zillertal mountains.

The Capella Granata was completed in the autumn of 2013 and is an architectural treasure in the Zillertal mountains. It was designed by the Swiss star architect Mario Botta and consists of a wooden frame structure on which weathering steel sheets are attached to the outside. These form the shape of a mineral that is particularly common in Zillertal, a garnet. The chapel is clad with local larch wood inside. Special light effects are created by the dome and two windows in the shape of a cross in the façade. Zillertal garnet inlays can also be found in the walnut altar that was designed by the artist Markus Thurner from Maurach am Achensee. The chapel is dedicated to the blessed Engelbert Kolland. You can reach the Capella Granata by the Finkenberg Almbahn lift. It‘s just a fiveminute walk up to the chapel from the Penkenjoch top station. However, there is also a pleasant mountain bike ride that leads right past the chapel. Most of the difference in altitude is covered by taking the Penkenbahn lift and then it is a comfortable half-hour bike ride on a simple gravel path on the plateau.
