The Primiero and Vanoi Valleys carry with them a long history of traditions, cultures, and ancient knowledge.
Descending from Passo Rolle and San Martino di Castrozza, nestled along the banks of the Cismon and Canali streams, you will find the lively villages of Siror, the village of fountains, Tonadico, a town with an art gallery, the colorful Transacqua with its flowered balconies, the 15th-century Fiera di Primiero, Mezzano, which is renowned for its gardens, ancient inscriptions, and artistic woodpiles and is listed among the most beautiful villages in Italy, and finally Imèr with its artistic benches.
By crossing the Passo Cereda, you reach the small villages of Sagron and Mis, where time seems to have stood still.
The Vanoi Valley, renamed as the Green Heart of Trentino, preserves the charm of vast forests and small villages nestled among meadows.
Not to be missed are the Val Venegia and Val Canali, home to the Paneveggio Pale di San Martino Natural Park.
A dive into the past
Those who wish to delve into the history and culture of this spectacular corner of Trentino should not miss the new P-Qui museum inside the Palazzo delle Miniere, the historic "Palazzo del Dazio," just a few steps away from the historic center of Fiera di Primiero. This museum is also suitable for children and will take you on an interesting journey through time to deepen your knowledge of the history of Primiero and its characters.
An important chapter in the history of the region was written by brave mountaineers who were the first to conquer the magnificent peaks of the Pale di San Martino, contributing to its emergence as a tourist destination. To learn more, treat yourself to a walk along Via Fontanelle in San Martino di Castrozza or make a stop at the new San Martino View Point.
Dedicated to the First World War are the Museo della Grande Guerra (Museum of the Great War) in Caoria and the exhibition in San Martino di Castrozza.
