Marble and Apricots Festival in Laas

The Church of Laas / Lasa - Vinschgau Valley.

The Marble and Apricot Festival in Laas is not only a purely culinary event, but more of a cultural festival where the apricot plays an essential role and is celebrated in the 1st weekend of August of each year.


  1. I love apricots so I wish I were there to join the celebration. Your shots captured it well.

  2. Although I'm not a fan of apricots, your photos make them look so very delicious. Another great festival in your area! I'm impressed.

  3. Honey with apricot--sounds like a great combination.

  4. Those apricots are huge and beautiful. Oh, the things that can be made with those beauties.

  5. Love apricots, and I'm sure marble has its important place, but this is an odd combination. Wish we could have joined you at the festival. Fine photos, but this is what we have come to expect from you.
