Pergine Valsugana

Overview

With a height of 490 m a.s.l. and 12 km east of Trento, the municipality of Pergine Valsugana occupies the vast basin at the foot of the Tegazzo hill and the valley floor of the Fersina torrent. It bathes in the blue waters of Lake Caldonazzo and is surrounded by mountains and climbs now known from the Giro d’Italia such as the climb to Monte Panarotta covered by the Corsa Rosa in 2014 and 2021. With 21,485 inhabitants, Pergine Valsugana is the third largest city Trentino by population after Rovereto and Trento.

Stronghold of the Valsugana on the shores of Lake Caldonazzo and at the beginning of the Valle dei Mocheni, the town is dominated by the historic and mighty Castel Pergine which overlooks the valley.

The castle, previously a Roman settlement, was known as the gateway to Valsugana. The manor was expanded as a medieval fortress in the 13th century and was long owned by Margarete Maultasch and later by Maximilian I, the Tyrolean prince.

Speciality food

Food and wine tourism and sports tourism can now be a winning combination: in Valsugana-Lagorai you can discover typical Trentino products and local dishes with a strong flavor of tradition, authenticity and quality.

Where unspoiled nature and green pastures meet the culture and passion of healthy eating, here come on our tables the best mountain flavors. From polenta with the famous Valsugana flour to the genuineness of the small fruits of Sant’Orsola; from the excellent sausages to the local dairy products, such as the typical alpine cheese from Malga Montagna Granda and “Lagorai”. But also honey, the apples of Trentino, the radicchio of Bieno, the medicinal herbs of Valsugana, the chestnuts of Roncegno and the typical “Treccia Mochena” from Caneza are transformed into truly unique dishes thanks to the magic touch of the people who take part in their processing.

In addition, in Valsugana-Lagorai the “Slow Food conduct” which aims to promote and safeguard the agri-food heritage of the territory: the good and healthy cuisine, here, is a treasure handed down from generation to generation.

Treat yourself to a break from the rule. Enjoy your holiday by tasting local food and wine products.

Wines and beverage

The grapes grown in the Chardonnay vineyards along the hillsides are made into the finest Spumante Metodo Classico Trento DOC – the signature wine of the region.

Points of interest

The town offers many places of interest for the many visitors who travel to Valsugana every year, both from a historical and cultural aspect and from a naturalistic point of view. The Castle of Pergine is an excellence and admirable place given its advantageous position and visible from every alley in the town centre. Among the Renaissance-style houses, patrician buildings and ancient churches, the arcades of Via Maier are among the most visited places among the many streets of the historic city center together with the historic Via Pennella and the “Piazza municipio Square. The building, dating back to the year 1697, was initially built on one floor and was later raised in 1786.

In the municipal area of Pergine Valsugana there are many green areas due to its advantageous position surrounded by the green and wild Lagorai and the Mocheni Valley.

The Parco ai 3 Castagni is located in the center of the town below the Castle, which can be reached via a path that climbs through the thick woods until you reach the ancient manor. The vast area recently redeveloped offers large spaces where residents and numerous visitors can spend leisure moments in direct contact with nature.

The Valsugana cycling path, connecting Pergine with its beautiful Lake Caldonazzo with the magnificent city of Bassano del Grappa, is a real paradise for people who love cycling: 80 km among culture, history and unique natural landscapes between Trentino and Veneto.

Unique in the world, in Canezza, is the Museum of the bollard. Each bollard is associated with a champion or a personality of the great cycling of the present and above all of the past. It is possible to admire the bollard dedicated to Fausto Coppi, Bartali and the one for Pantani accompanied by explanations on its origin and its composition: those in granite and those in cement, those in wood and those in plastic material; the one coming from the Dolomite passes and the one taken on the hairpin bends of the Pyrenees or on the roads of the great classics of the North. Strolling along the paths bordered by the bollard, you come across the big names in the sport of cycling: Merckx, Anquetil, Gimondi, Magni, Bobet… and down to Carrea and Giuliani in a emotional of memories and memorable feats.

Povegliano

Overview

Povegliano lies north of Treviso, in the region Veneto. According to an ancient tradition, Povegliano was founded around the 6th-7th century, when the population relocated to the place where the major church now rises in order to escape the flooding from the Piave.

The ‘comune’ of Povegliano, with its subdivisions Santandrà and Camalò, was founded in 1807 by Napoleon, but the final arrangement of the territory began in 1814, when the Kingdom of Lombardy-Venetia was created.

‘Pojan in Festa’, the major popular festival in town, held every year between August and September, attracts thousands of people with its food and drink stalls.
