VALBRENTA

The municipality of Valbrenta was established on January 30, 2019 through the merger of the former municipalities of Campolongo sul Brenta, Cismon del Grappa, San Nazario and Valstagna.

Valbrenta stretches along most of the valley of the same name, bordered on the north by the Trentino Valsugana. On its sides, it is surrounded by the acrocorus of the Seven Municipalities to the west and the Grappa massif to the east. The territory of the valley is entirely crossed by the Brenta River.

In prehistoric times, Paleovenetian communities engaged in agriculture and animal husbandry, with a necropolis at San Giorgio delle Acque showing a role in metal circulation. The Valbrenta served as a transhumance and trade route.

Historical development is linked to the founding of the Campese monastery and the Ezzelini da Romano, who favored colonization. Roman and Lombard settlements are known, such as the Covolo of Butistone .

The Republic of Venice contributed to the development of the Valbrenta, using timber and river routes for naval trade. Valstagna became important for trade through the Calà del Sasso.

Here are located the Oliero Caves , among the largest karst springs in Europe and a tourist destination of national interest.

For sportsmen, one of the main attractions is the Brenta bicycle path which runs through the entire territory with the possibility of e-bike rental. And for those who crave a little adrenaline, many activities such as rafting and canoeing along the river are available.

The Valbrenta area also offers interesting points of interest, such as the Paper Mill Museum and the Alberto Parolini Museum of Speleology and Karst Mining.
