Hidden Treasures: The path through the chestnut grove of Drena
Educational path dedicated to the local culture of the chestnut, in the “maroneri” chestnut grove.
The Cammino dei Ricci trail is dedicated to the sweet chestnut and its precious fruit which grows so well in the Drena area. This chestnut wood with over 5000 ancient trees is one of the largest in all Trentino. The fruit are locally known as 'maroni', and are grown using natural methods and hand-picked in autumn, according to local tradition. To find out more about the maroni of Dren, we invite you to read this piece in our blog.
To round off the visit of the town we recommend a visit of the little sanctuary to Our Lady of Fatima in Via Roma and to the Castle of Drena.
