The most Beautiful Villages
San Lorenzo in Banale is one of the Most Beautiful Villages in Italy
Your cultural holiday in Trentino surrounded by nature, traditions and good food
Close to Terme di Comano, San Lorenzo in Banale is the ideal destination for lovers of Trentino art and culture. It has numerous examples of the valley’s rural architecture, such as Casa Mazoleti, Casa Moscati and Casa Martioni, and is one of the most Beautiful Villages in Italy.
San Lorenzo is an old farming village spread out over a verdant, sunny terrace overlooking over the valley with the Brenta Dolomites rising up behind it. Located at the entrance to the splendid Val d’Ambièz, the village is the gateway to the Adamello Brenta Nature Park.
An absolute must to visit is the “Once upon a time” Park House, an eighteenth century building restored in the style of a typical farmhouse from times gone by, and the 16th century church of San Rocco and San Sebastiano which has important frescoes by the Baschenis family of itinerant painters, active in the 16th century.
