Molina di Ledro is located near Lake Ledro and well-known especially for its lake dwellings from the Bronze Age.
Their remains can be admired in the “Museo delle Palafitte” (pile-dwelling museum) today. It also shows the most important findings of excavations of the Trento Science Museum. Pottery and hand-crafted tools of bronze, stone, bones and wood are exhibited. Something very special is the remake of a lake dwelling outdoors of the museum, straight by the lake.
In the village centre of Molina, south of the Piazza Roma square, the granite stairs start, which lead to the Saint Vigilius Church from the 18th century. In the oldest quarter of Molina, in Verdesina, the Saint Francis of Paola Church from 1628 is located. A little bit below the “Casa Demadonna” residence can be found, which was the home of the Scaligeri (Masters of Verona) in the 16th century.
Also the „Casa Zecchini“ residence is located in Molina, birthplace of the famous poet and translator Andrea Maffei. Last but not least don’t miss the frescoes on the exterior walls of the two houses “Al Castel” and “Casa Bai” in the village centre. As you see, there is plenty to discover for art and culture lovers!
