The San Martino archaeological site, Comano Valley
From the peak, it dominates a vast area: this is the San Martino archaeological site.
It was here, in the Late Antiquity, that a fortified settlement was built for strategic military reasons.
Today, all that remains is the beautiful view from the top. A visit to San Martino is a chance to immerse yourself in history, stepping back in time, to the 3rd century AD.
Later, during Roman times, the area had a religious purpose, with the construction of a sanctuary, remains of which are still visible. Close to the sanctuary, you can see part of a village which was probably built by the military after the sanctuary had already fallen into disuse.
Lastly, a church was built in the Early Middle Ages on the ruins of a village and which remained in use until the around the 1500s.
