Padergnone is located in the surroundings of the Toblino and Santa Massenza lakes
Padergnone and the basin of the two lakes (Conca dei Due Laghi) have a long history which dates back until the time of romanisation. Located along the route between the town of Trento and the western Trentino, Padergnone always was transit area for foreign peoples and settlement zone of the Langobards. Christianised by the Franks, Padergnone then was influenced by the prince-archbishop of Trento. Worth seeing is the parish church dedicated to the Saints Philip and James, a Renaissance building with Baroque elements.
The landscape round the vilage is characterized by hills and thanks to the mild climate also olive trees grow. Here in Padergnone, not far away from Lake Garda, you can find numerous hiking and cycling trails to explore this idyllic spot of land.
Padergnone is considered to be the cradle of viticulture in Trentino: In 1909 the agrarian consortium has been founded in order to save the grapevines from vine pest, a vermin. Moreover this is where the famous “Vino Santo” (Holy Wine) was produced for the first time. The wine bears this name due to the fact that this wine was pressed in the “Holy Week”.
