Denno

Denno, one of the main villages in the lower Val di Non valley, is located between Mezzolombardo and Cles on the right riverside of the Noce river.

Between the famous apple orchards in the Val di Non valley there is the village of Denno, located at an altitude of 430 m a.s.l. and inhabited by 1,200 citizens.

Particularly worth visiting are the buildings dating back to the 16th century located in the historic centre and the church, dedicated to S. Gervasio and Protasio. This church has first been mentioned in in the 12th century and was rebuilt in 1542 AD. In the inside some emblems of the family who administered the village, have been preserved. Highly precious are for example the high altar, the wooden pulpit and the frescoes. The facade has been constructed in Gothic style.

At the edge of the village there are two further churches, one is dedicated to S. Agnese, the other to S. Pietro. Inside the San Pietro church you can admire frescoes of Battista and Giovanni Baschenis.
