Sentieri dei Vecchi Mestieri

The Old Trades Trail

The Old Trades Trail follows ancient paths that have linked the two sides of Valle di Cembra from time immemorial. The trail reweaves the ethnographic fabric of the Upper Valle di Cembra as it once was and makes it possible to see and/or visit various ancient man-made structures and tradesmen’s workshops, some of which remained in use until the 1950s: limekilns; watermills driven by water diverted from impetuous streams; and smithies.
Time needed: 6 hours there and back (the route can be divided into two stages of approximately 3 to 4 hours each); difficult: easy to moderate; characteristics of the path: linear; information boards along the way
