Perdonig ( Italian Predonico ) is a fraction of the municipality Eppan in Überetsch in South Tyrol ( Italy ).


In the year 1220 Predonig is first documented as "Predonigum" . In princely Urbar Count Meinhard II. Of 1288, the location appears as "ze Pradonie" . The local chaplaincy of St. Vigil is mentioned for the first time in 1316 . Its owner in 1435, "her Vlreich ab Pradonig" , was among those South Tyrolean chaplains and priests who committed to holding the Austrian anniversary at the Marian parish church in Bolzano .

Numerous hiking trails lead from Perdonig to Nals , Andrian , the Gantkofel , Gaid , the Eppaner Höhenweg and the castles of Hocheppan , Boymont and Korb .

The newly designed parish church of St. Vigilius and Ulrich from 1799 as well as the Vigilius Hill, on which the remains of a late antique hilltop settlement and the old early Christian St. Vigilius Church can be found, are worth seeing . In 1931, a shield hump and a rider's spur and probably a strap tongue were found, which are said to come from a grave and are dated to the late 6th century. In 1938 a horse brooch was also found.

The small hamlet of Gaid, with its pilgrimage church from 1638, belongs to the parish of Perdonig. From here you have an outstanding view of the Bolzano basin, the communities of Eppan and Terlan and the Adige Valley as far as Merano .

The demanding route from St. Michael to Perdonig and Gaid is also very popular with cyclists and mountain bikers.
