Burgeis (Italian: Burgusio, Romansh: Barbusch ) is the largest frazione of the comune of Mals and sits at an altitude of 1216m in Vinschgau in South Tyrol beneath the mountain Watles (2557) on the upper reaches of the Adige. The name goes all the way back to a Roman founding, as a fort on the "Via Claudia Augusta", which runs through the village. This fort later gave the name of the Edelfreien von Burgus-Wanga, whose arms the village bears today.
Burgeis has 828 inhabitants (March 2007) . It lies 2.5 Kilometer from Mals.(Wikipedia)
