At the slopes of the Predaia High Plateau, embedded in an impressive landscape, the village of Vervò (approx. 700 inhabitants) is located at 890 m a.s.l. In this former shepherds' settlement important excavations were made, for example 17 Roman inscriptions were found here. A true treasure which is exhibited in the Museo Maffeiano in Verona now.
The historic centre is mainly characterised by the typical Val di Non construction style, influenced by alpine elements. From the main place some little roads branch off, flanked by buildings with massive masonry, often decorated with frescos picturing emblems, saints or decorative elements. Worth seeing is e.g. the relief at the mansion Casa Gottardi and the frescoes in the Santa Maria church, as well as its golden altar.
Of course you should also visit the San Martino church which is enthroned on a rock spur in direction Pongaiola gorge. In order to reach this church, follow the way of the cross. The church itself, which was constructed on the prehistoric fortress, is indeed old, but was repeatedly rebuilt and changed, for the last time in the 17th century. Next to this church, there is the S. Fabiano and Sebastiano chapel.
In the little village of Priò there is the San Michele parish church, from where you can enjoy a great view on Vervò.
