On its territory, at the foot of the extraordinary peaks of the Brenta Dolomites, there are many cultural attractions. In addition to some historic houses and as many as six churches, the evocative hermitage of San Pancrazio and the small church of Santi Filippo e Giacomo in Segonzone. Here are preserved important late-fifteenth-century frescoes signed by Giovanni e Battista Baschenis.

Its history begins in the second half of the 1200s, then is linked to the Khuen family of Termeno, which will maintain control until the mid-1900s. The bond with this family is also maintained in the municipal coat of arms: the lion is present in both the Campodenno and Khuen-Belasi coat of arms.
