Plateau of Piné and Valle di Cembra

Plateau of Piné and Valle di Cembra

The area that includes the Piné plateau and the Cembra valley is located in eastern Trentino, between the Fiemme valley, the Mocheni valley and the Adige plain.

The Piné and Cembra plateau is the ideal environment for a holiday in contact with nature and in the name of relaxation, in fact every year many tourists who are passionate about walks and mountain excursions spend their holidays here.

With an average altitude of about 900 meters, the Piné plateau offers a luxuriant landscape, rich in meadows, woods and splendid lakes, including the largest of the Piazze, Serraia and Buse lakes.
While the adjacent Valle di Cembra is characterized by terraces covered with vineyards that descend from its sunny slopes up to the Avisio stream.

In the Piné plateau and in the Val di Cembra, ancient and uncontaminated flavors can still be found today. Starting from delicious cold cuts and cheeses up to prestigious wines such as Müller-Thurgau, or fine grappas to be tasted in the Cembrane distilleries.
Precisely for its food and wine delicacies in the Cembra Valley the DiVin Ottobre event is organized every year, during the weekends of October.

Another tourist attraction of the Altopiamo di Piné are the picturesque nativity scenes made during the Christmas period and the Christmas market, where there is no shortage of games and entertainment for children, to make the event suitable for families.

Those who want to have fun skating can do so thanks to a beautiful and well-equipped ice rink at the Piné Stadium, where you can practice figure skating, speed skating and broomball. You can also rent equipment on site.

In the winter season, various major sporting events take place, such as cross-country skiing on the rings around the Ice Rink and around Lake Buse, and the descent on the Tradis field, in Piazze.

There is no shortage of places of worship, even these very popular, in fact in the midst of nature you can visit two splendid sanctuaries:

– the Sanctuary of Montagnaga in Piné
– the Madonna dell’Aiuto in the town of Segonzano.

Absolutely not to be missed in Segonzano are the suggestive earth pinnacles called “Pyramids of Segonzano“, formed over the millennia thanks to the disintegration of the rocks and the erosion of the water.

Then there is another interesting tourist attraction, made in honor of the famous German Renaissance painter Dürer Weg, which is a 39 kilometer long cultural trekking itinerary on the same path traveled by the artist in 1494, during his journey in Italy towards Venice.
The route lasts three days, starting from the Kloestero di San Floriano, with several stops, the first at the Egna lakes, then at those of the Pochi di Salorno and Rio Val Fredda, up to Lake Santo.
Then crossing the Cantilaga Bridge, it ends at the Pyramids of Segonzano.

Those who decide to follow him, in addition to the pleasure of being immersed in the natural beauty of the valley, will have the opportunity to admire the same places that Dürer Weg has depicted in some of his famous watercolors.
