The Comano Valley, a Biosphere Reserve
The landscape, the flora and fauna all demonstrate the biodiversity of the Comano Valley, a rural area where the local communities have preserved the extraordinary natural riches of the region.
Immerse yourself in this land, visit the most beautiful corners of the Adamello Brenta Natural Park, Trentino’s largest protected area and a certified geopark, discover the nature reserves in the Val Lomasona and the ancient pile dwellings at Fiavé, all in perfect harmony with nature.
And there’s more: a stroll through the alleys of Rango and San Lorenzo in Banale, officially two of Italy’s Most Beautiful Villages, whilst tasting the traditional food & drink of these places, such as hazelnuts from Bleggio and ciuìga from Banale, will transport you back in time because here our traditions and heritage are preserved as they once were.
Breathe deeply, savour the fresh mountain air at the foot of the Brenta Dolomites, an area rich in biodiversity.
The biosphere reserve certification is an incredible opportunity for local communities to improve their collective well-being and preserve the heritage. It also offers you the chance to visit a unique environment with stunning views.
