Trins was originally not a farming village but was founded as a mining village. At one time antimony, copper, and lead were mined in the region and when the boom failed to happen, the village gradually was shaped by agriculture. The name Trins seems to come from the prehistoric language root word “Truna”. Due to the rich alpine flora, Trins was visited by famous botanists with increasing frequency. Additionally, the town was the filming location of the film “Das vergessene Tal” (The Last Valley) in the 1970s from director James Clavell.
