A simple walk that allows you to discover some historic places in Cavalese, including the Tower of San Valerio, that overlooked the former town of Cadrobio, the ancient Venetian sawmill and the old railway line. The several dry-stone walls surrounding the path testify to the absolute need to create flat terraces for crops.

Destination

Piazza Verdi

Turn-by-turn directions

The circular walk starts behind the hill close to the bar and the tennis courts, in the Parco della Pieve. After a few meters, the downhill path crosses the road where the Val di Fiemme railway once ran. Following the dirt road, you arrive in a short time at the crossroads to reach the Tower of San Valerio. After admiring the view, descend along a paved road to Sottocastello. From here, turn right towards the meadows until you reach a cantilevered platform over the valley. From here you can admire a glimpse towards the “Cavalese Waterfall”.

In a few minutes, you can reach the Ancient Venetian Sawmill, which is still functioning. From the beginning of July to the beginning of September, the guided tour (by reservation) demonstrates how, thanks to the power of water, wooden boards were once obtained from the fir trees of the Val di Fiemme for construction purposes. Continue uphill along the paved road, turn left after the 2-hairpin bends, and follow a country road towards a long climb facilitated by 83 wooden steps. A dirt road leads you then to via Brunetta and via Fan near the Fiemme hospital. Continue downhill and take Via Pasquai on the right and then Via Cavallaia reaching Piazza Ress.
