Trodena in the Nature Park
The little village of Trodena is set in the picturesque landscape of the Monte Corno Nature Park and can looks back on 900 years of history. The village includes the hamlets of Trodena village, Fontanefredde, Molini di Trodena and San Lugano. The San Lugano Pass at an altitude of 1,097 metres above sea level is well known. It links the provinces of South Tyrol and Trentino with each other and also a popular destination for mountain bikers.
In Trodena wonderful peace and idyllic surroundings await the visitor. If you look at the characteristic houses and little streets, time seems to have stood still here. The original character of the village has been preserved over the years and lends it a quite special charm.
The Gothic parish church of St. Blasius, the newly reconstructed lime kilns and a 600 year old lime tree in the village square are among the things worth visiting in Trodena. The Monte Corno Nature Park enfolds the village in its wonderfully undisturbed natural world. No conservation area in South Tyrol offers a flora and fauna richer in species than this hiker's paradise. Numerous well marked trails lead through the larch forests and invite you to keep on walking. The Nature Park Office is located in an old mill, which was renovated in 2000 and since then has been used to grind corn.
