The Parco della Pieve is a historical park that was originally a large lawn. It experienced a first diffusion of organized greenery from the late nineteenth century until it expanded in the 1920s until it reached the Old Railway track.
The exploration of the old railway line is the central point of this walk. Going through the old tunnel is a unique experience, knowing that you are walking on the track of a railway that until 1963 connected Ora in the province of Bolzano with Predazzo.
