Trambileno presents several memories of the First World War

Trambileno consists of a high elevated plain that is composed of eighteen component localities. The villages emerged from Mediaeval farms, the seat of the town hall is, indeed, Moscheri.

Worth to be noticed, especially due to its position, is the pilgrimage church Madonna de La Salette, that was built in the style of the French La Salette chapel. Further sights not to be missed are the hermitage of San Colombano, built into the mountain face, and the fortress Forte Pozzacchio, the last but incomplete construction of the Austro-Hungarian army in WWI. Particularly worth noticing at this building is that it arose from excavations at Monte Pasubio. Nevertheless its dimensions are remarkable. To clarify, this striking fortification was dug into a rock spur of Monte Pasubio.

From the village of Boccaldo you can reach the Rifugio Lancia, a mountain hut that is located about 12 km away. This mountain hut represents an ideal starting point for hikes on the Pasubio, a mountain that was destroyed by bombings during the war. Today nature gradually comes back to life at its slopes.
