Hidden Treasures: Treasures of Sacral Art in Arco
An easy itinerary which focuses on the historic frescoed churches around Arco, little known gems, the perfect walking tour for lovers of art and architecture.
This itinerary focuses on the historic frescoed churches around Arco which bear witness to the deep roots of the local faith. What we are dealing with here are chapels, little churches of outlying hamlets, and shrines which tell of a simple yet widespread faith, with close links to local rural tradition (to find out more about this theme we suggest the trail about Nago and the religious faith of the country people).
This is a loop along the banks of the River Sarca, on both sides of the river, and touching on Ceniga (municipality of Dro), San Martino and Bolognano. This area is part of the Sarca River Reserve, a nature reserve designed to protect the particular environments around the river.
So this itinerary invites you not only to discover the artistic treasures of the area but also to enjoy the particular landscape which is dominated by the river.
