Pinzolo is the major center of Val Rendena, especially for tourism, thanks to sports facilities. Pinzolo, Sant’Antonio di Mavignola and Madonna di Campiglio go from 774m in Pinzolo to 1681m in Passo Campo Carlo Magno. Much of the territory is under the protection of the Adamello Brenta Nature Park.
Nestled at the foot of the Brenta Dolomites and the Adamello Presanella group, Pinzolo is a lively and dynamic village. Here the everyday life and the tourist vacations coexist, making hospitality a typical feature. The Doss del Sabion ski slopes and the connection with the Campiglio Skiarea, the long paths of the nearby Val Genova and the Rendena cycle path are just some of the activities that you can do here, either for families or young people. In addition, for sports enthusiasts there is the ice stadium, paragliding flights and the downhill bike area. There are also numerous cultural places to visit, such as the ancient church of San Vigilio. Famous for the fresco of the Macabra Dance by Simone Baschenis of 1539, which represents the dance of death where all men are equal.
Moreover, the name of Pinzolo has been linked to the great summer football retreats in Trentino for several years as it has welcomed important Serie A teams such as Juventus, Inter, Roma and Parma. In Pinzolo, the first Italian Alpine Rescue Corps was established in 1952.
Sant’Antonio di Mavignola
At 1123 m above sea level, Sant’Antonio di Mavignola is a small village surrounded by greenery with farms and meadows that recall its rural origins. From here start the excursions to the Adamello Brenta Nature Park. You can walk to Vallesinella, Val Brenta and Valagola in the Dolomites, or Val Nambrone and Ritort, on the Adamello side. Not far from the center, there are the suggestive farms of Pimont and Milegna that belong to the ancient rural tradition. The Austro-Hungarian fortification of Clemp, instead, witnesses the tragic events of the Great War.
Madonna di Campiglio
At 1,522 m, Madonna di Campiglio is one of the most famous and beautiful ski resorts in the Alps. Known as the “Pearl of the Dolomites“, this glamorous ski resort has a noble and legendary past. If today it is skiing that leads the economy of the area, in reality it was summer tourism that discovered the beauty of this place. In Campiglio the Society of the Tridentine Mountaineers was founded in 1872 and here the emperors of Austria Sissi and Franz Josef used to stay. Today they are evoked in important social events, such as the Habsburg Carnival or the torchlight procession at the beginning of the year.
Pinzolo and its hamlets are located in an extraordinary natural environment, recognized by UNESCO World Heritage and Unesco Global Geopark. This heritage is preserved in a protected area among the most active and important in Europe.
