Canal San Bovo is the chief hamlet of the town composed of other hamlets: Caoria, Ronco, Prade, Zortea, Cicona and Gobbera (inhabitants 1,721; surface area 125 km²). It is a characteristic village with paved streets of porphyry and white houses reflecting the sun on the green mountain terraced slope, approximately a hundred meters above the confluence of the Vanoi and a mountain stream bed. It is possible to go down to the Vanoi´s enormous stony bed following the old road (with a view of the Cauriol pyramid) on the green terrace, shaded by age-old pear trees, and to reach Canale di Sotto which maintains the old houses: shingled roof, balconies, wooden superstructures.
Among the ...
... hamlets, Caoria presents one of the more mountainous landscape in Trentino. After the Calchere, dominated by the burnt and desolate pyramid of Cauriol, you can find the Italian military graveyard, built in 1916, for those killed in the surrounding mountains during the war. It is the seat of Casa del Sentiero Etnografico del Vanoi, of the Mostra Arti e Mestieri de nà Volta exhibition and starting point of the Anello Della Val and numerous other walks. From the hamlets of Zortea Prade and Gobbera you can walk along many trails to the Valle Zortei and its surroundings. Not to be forgotten is Lake Calaita. Ronco with its characteristic Colmei stands on a gentle slope.
In the hamlets Zortea Prade and Gobbera different paths and hiking trails come across that lead to the popular destinations in Valle Zortei and to the Calaita lake. Ronco, with its characteristic "Colmei" (village center) is located on a beautiful hill.
