Piller Sattel Sacrificial Site - Tirol

The Piller Sattel is a 1,800 year old prehistoric sacrificial site where burnt offerings were made. During the Bronze Age and the Ice Age mainly animals were offered, later on also weapons, primers, jewels, votive plates and coins. The spreading of Christian belief put an end to the sacrificial site. Nowadays the sacrificial site is marked by a 2,5 m high hill.

The trail to the Pillersattel is leading through a high moor landscape, on the tracks of the Bronze Age route.

Findings can be admired in the Fließ Museum!
