Municipality of the province of Bolzano, famous for its production of fine wines, located at the foot of the valley of the Val d'Adige, Terlano (Terlan in German) is known not only for the abundant production of apples and grapes but also for its excellent asparagus. An ideal departure point for hiking or mountain biking along the mountain paths and through the woods, combined to the visit of the local wineries, scattered throughout the area. The town, lying in the valley, is dominated by the steeple of the church.
The town's name probably derives from the Latin name "Taurilius" and was documented for the first time in 923.
