Terre d’Adige extends north of Trento, in the plain of the Adige River and is an ideal starting point to discover the Trentino. Due to the near river, this municipality always has been an important transit area and was already settled in prehistoric times. This is proofed by archaeological findings, like a female skeleton, which is known as “La donna di Vatte” (the woman of Vatte), it is exhibited in the Scientific Museum of Trento today. Also worth seeing is the church dedicated to the Saints Phillip and Jacob in Zambana Vecchia, which was restored recently.
The municipality is also well known for the white asparagus of Zambana, a delicate vegetable, which is still cut by hand – a real treat for the palate!
