Around 1720, Castelrotto recorded a sharp increase in both the farmhands who cultivated the large arable land and other professions such as builders, tailors and millers. However, a large part of the population, especially in the surroundings, continued to live in poor conditions. The number of panhandlers in town grew so high, that in 1728 a special “supervisor” was appointed to control this "plague of beggars".
The local inns, however, benefited from the increased clientele. The "Cavallino" changed hands several times until it was bought in 1854 by Paul Prossliner, owner of the famous thermal bath Bad Ratz near Siusi. This bathing house had already been built in 1723 and had initiated the tourism in Castelrotto.
