DARZO - 408 m. a.s.l.
A small village on the right bank of the river Chiese. It has a range of sports facilities which include an indoor sports centre, football pitches, indoor and outdoor tennis courts and bowling alleys. The small Baroque church of San Michele with sixteenth century frescoes and the church of San Giovanni Nepomuceno built in 1754 are worth a visit. Excursions into the mountains can be made along paths with lovely views or by car to the conifer woods of Dos Rotond, the Alpine huts of Plaz, Spina, Valdoneda and Casina Vecia and to Monte Tonolo.
LODRONE - 388 m. a.s.l.
The village, situated where the Valle del Chiese reaches its greatest width, was the home of the Lodron family, one of the most powerful in Trentino during the Middle Ages. Evidence of their presence can still be seen in the Rocca fortress of Santa Barbara (11th century), Palazzo Bavaria (rebuilt in the 16th century) and Palazzo Lodron del Caffaro, also from the same period. Examples of religious art can be seen in the small church of the Madonna dell´Aiuto (18th century) and in the parish church, built in 1499, with frescoes of the Baschenis family. From Lodrone a road leads to the village of Riccomassimo, and from here excursions to Monte Tonolo, to the old village of Bagolino and to the Gaver ski slopes can be made.
