Way to Lago Santo
Mountain tour • Altopiano di Pine' and Valle di Cembra
The path from the village of Cembra to Lago Santo follows part of the ancient Via Claudia Augusta which connected Trento with Tyrol.
Distance 13.9 km
The famous German engraver and painter Albrecht Dürer followed this route in 1494 as did Napoleonic troops some three centuries later on their way to the Castle of Segonzano.
The route develops in the woods, interspersed with clearings where the "huts" of the locals, with the porphyry roof slabs according to the tradition or more modern ones, have been built, and with meadows protected by the typical dry stone walls. Halfway along the ring route appears the Santo lake, of immaculate beauty.
Each place has its own history and Santo Lake hides a bit of sacred magic ... discover its history in the legends on https://www.visitpinecembra.it/psc/storie-e-leggende-locali
