Relaxing walk in the park of Cavalese where some benches invite you to enjoy the panoramic views of the valley.
The Parco della Pieve is a historical park that was originally a large lawn. It experienced a first spread of organized green from the late nineteenth century to expand in the 1920s, reaching the railway path. The exploration of the old railway line is the central point of this walk. Crossing the old tunnel is a special experience; you walk along the route of the train which, first coal and then electric, from 1917 to 1963 connected Ora, in the province of Bolzano, with Predazzo.

Then follow the stone paved path arriving at the tennis courts. Turn left behind the tennis bar and continue along the scenic walkway that leads to the Archpriest’s Church of St. Maria Assunta and the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Sorrows.
