Tinizong is first mentioned in Roman times as Tinnetione in the Itinerarium Antonini. In Carolingian times, Tinizong was the seat of a royal court. In the late Middle Ages until 1834, the village with the Port occupied an important position as a transit point for pass traffic. With the decision of the Grand Council in 1834 to abolish port duties and transport privileges, Tinizong lost its important position as a place of transport and transhipment. In 1610, a fire destroyed the main part of the village and parts of the Blasius Church from the 9th century. In 1631 the Capuchins took over the parish. Among them, today's remarkable Baroque building was built. The precious Gothic winged altar dates from 1512.
In the Val d'Err, manganese ores (steel refiners) were mined, including the very rare ores tinzenite, parsettensite and surassite, whose names suggest the origin.
