Trentino by car in the valleys around the Brenta Group:
of the Rendena Valley
trip to the Genova Valley can be enjoyably combined with a visit to the
village of Montagne and its districts of Lariana and Binio Start
from Ponte Arche, towards Tione
. Very soon you come to the turn-off for Ragoli
and then you head for Preore. From Preore turn right and take road no. 53
which winds uphill as far as Binio (outlying district of Montagne, 1075 m.).
Carry on along the asphalt road (winding and narrow) towards the Daone Pass
(1,300 m.). Near Borzago take the main road for the Rendena Valley. After the
bridge in Carisolo turn left in the direction of the Genova Valley and the
Cascate Nardis waterfall (a walk to the Bedole Refuge, about 3 hours, is
recommended). For the return journey, if you do not wish to go around the
Brenta Group, take the classic route: Pinzolo, Tione, Ponte Arche.
people interested in religious art should take a look at the churches where
the itinerant Baschenis family of painters from Averaria near Bergamo once
worked: in Pinzolo the church of San Vigilio boasts an impressive Danse
Macabre while in Massimeno the façade of the church was painted by
Simone Baschenis towards 1530, as it was in Giustino where the church of
Santa Lucia also has a carved wooden high altar sculpted by Stefano Lamberti.
Dionisio Baschenis decorated the small church of San Valentino above Vigo
Rendena, while other works of his can be seen in the church of Sant’Antonio
Abate, just to the north of Pelugo.
