Canale di Tenno
One of the most beautiful medieval villages in Italy
As intact as it is old, the medieval hamlet of Canale di Tenno lays on the Trentino hills of Lake Garda, and is well known for its distinctive urban structure and typical food and wine products.
Laying on the hills of the Trentino side of Lake Garda, Canale di Tenno is a medieval hamlet almost intact to these days, of which we have records dating back to 1211.
The village still retains its original structure, with the two main streets meeting to form a small square. Intricate cobbled alleys, arches and stone houses complete a picture frozen in time. Today Canale counts 50 residents, but thanks to its entry in the list of the Most Beautiful Medieval Villages in Italy, it can now rely on a increased flow of tourists and on many events to promote its beauty, art and typical food and wine products.
