The Paneveggio-Pale di San Martino Nature Park is found in the eastern part of Trentino on the border with Veneto and embraces an untouched territory on the cusp between Valle di Primiero, Val di Fiemme and Val di Fassa. This colourful, uncontaminated area is marked by the intense green of its age-old forests, the more vibrant hues of its meadows, the pink of the Pale di San Martino Dolomites, the dark red of the Lagorai rocks, the blue of the lakes and its fawn-coloured deer and roes.

Squirrel day!


The Park is a staunch promoter of the protection of the European red squirrel, in serious danger of extinction, organising monitoring activities to know their actual consistency and distribution. This learning activity, particularly suitable for families with children, opens with a short presentation at the Villa Welsperg visitor's centre.
