The village of San Candido, Alta Pusteria religious center , has developed around the monastery founded by Duke Tassilo III of Bavaria in 769 and built during the reign of the bishop of Freising Arbeo to counter the Slavs , then still pagan . For centuries the dependence on the ecclesiastical point of view was the diocese of Freising ( San Corbiniano ) , the oldest of Bavaria. The old links with Freising led in 2007 to establish a twinning between the two towns. Around the middle of the fourteenth century, the attempt to make the country a shopping center on the way to the Cadore and Carinthia was opposed by the Counts of Gorizia , who did not want that arose on economic rivalries with nearby Lienz . San Candido was so especially a religious center , gravitating around the Collegiate Church , which over the centuries has attracted thousands of pilgrims. The historic center is therefore characterized by numerous places of worship , as well as stately homes of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. In the division , in 1918 , of Tyrol between Austria and Italy , San Candido would theoretically have to stay Austria , lying beyond the Alpine watershed but for military reasons was attributed to Italy and there were built two large barracks and the Cantor the Druze , the first still the responsibility of the 6th Alpini Regiment . The presence of the border in the village of Prato alla Drava also determined the presence of a large group of Italian officials . San Candido has been for years the terminus of the railway line that went from Fortress, while the six miles of line to the border , they were managed by the Austrian railways . As long as there has been a strict customs inspection , it was characterized by the presence of trains corridor that linked Lienz in East Tyrol , with Innsbruck.
