The origins of the parish church of Caldaro are difficult to discover, but are likely to date back to the early Middle Ages. In 1376, the then small Romanesque church was a robbery of the flames down to its foundations. After the reconstruction there was 1791/1793 to a new building of the parish church of the Assumption. Only the 72.5 meter high tower, the lower part of which dates from the 13th century, remained standing. The style of the church has been classical since then, but there are many baroque elements inside the church. Worth seeing are above all the ceiling paintings by the Tyrolean baroque painter Josef Schöpf. The Baroque organ case from 1792 was beautifully embellished by the carver Kasper Schonger.
