Tiarno di Sopra, the last village in the Valle di Ledro valley, is located at the border to the Val d’Ampola valley, a popular place for hiking tours at all times of the year
Although the village was destroyed by fires in the 18th century and badly hurt during both World Wars examples of rural architecture and some ancient residences can be admired still today. Opposite of the townhall the “Casa Oliari” residence is located, the residence of a Venetian trade family, their coat of arms from the 16th century still can be seen at the external wall.
In the village and surroundings numerous capitals can be admired, which reflect the deep religiosity of the population. Not far away from the village centre the Val d’Ampola valley with its hay sheds and lime kilns is located. There Lake Ampola can be find, a protected biotope with interesting plants and animal species. In the connected visitors’ centre everything about flora and fauna of the area can be discovered.
Starting at the Lake Ampola a road proceeds to the Monte Tremalzo mountain, gorgeous for mountain bike tours. Here also the alpine pastures of Bezzecca and Tiarno di Sopra are located, which are still used as cattle runs. They are popular hiking destinations, don’t miss them!
