The saint Jacob's Church in Val Gardena 

The St Jacob’s Church (in Ladin “dlieja da Sacun”) is situated above Ortisei in Val Gardena and can be reached only by foot from the hamlet San Giacomo. It’s the oldest church in Val Gardena and distinguishes itself by beautiful Gothic frescoes that date back to the late 15th century and a richly decorated high altar with figures built by the famous local sculptors Vinazer.
The church is dedicated to St Jacob, the patron saint of travellers and pilgrims.
People don’t know when the church was built, but first written documents date back to 1283.
