San Lorenzo in Banale

A gem of rural architecture placed between the Brenta Dolomites and Lake Garda, San Lorenzo in Banale is counted among the Most Beautiful Medieval Villages in Italy

A small gem set at the foot of the Brenta Dolomites, Unesco world heritage site, San Lorenzo in Banale is listed as one of the Most Beautiful Medieval Villages in Italy also thanks to its position, urban structure and the unique character of its food and wine products.

The village lays at the foot of the Brenta Dolomites, and is a natural access point to the Adamello Brenta Nature Park. It is strategically positioned with respect to the main ski resorts and the beautiful Molveno Lake, awarded 5 Blue Sails by Legambiente.

The rather peculiar history of this small village shows how it passed from Roman rule to the Trentino Bishop Princes’ and then Tyrol’s rule. The village was put together from as many as seven “Ville”, now its districts, each one with its own chapel, saint and customs.

In late 19th century a butcher from the village, driven by need, recycled meat scraps mixing them with red turnips and producing a type of sausage, the “ciuiga”, which has now earned the Slow Food Presidium qualification, and has its own homonymous “Sagra” [Village Fair].
