Smarano has about 500 inhabitants and is located at approx. 1,000 m a.s.l. on the eastern side of the Val di Non valley. It is a former Roman settlement surrounded by green meadows, woods and apple trees. The major sources of income are agriculture and animal husbandry.
Art lovers should not miss a visit to the Church of the Assumption of Mary which was built in the 12th and 13th century in Baroque and Renaissance style. It houses a precious organ with mechanical action from 1993 which is eminently suitable to play Baroque and Renaissance music. Therefore the courses of the International Organ Academy are organised in this church.
This small idyllic village is home of numerous painters, artisans, sculptors and restorers. They make Smarano an artistic place which sets great value upon its old traditions.
However, if you want to experience the beauty of the landscape in the Val di Non valley, we recommend a walk to the ancient bridge “Pons Altus” which connects the Noce and Cles rivers. From there you have a fantastic panoramic view on the mountains of the Val di Non, the Maddalene mountain chain and the Brenta Dolomites.
