Borgo Valsugana

Borgo Valsugana, one of the most beautiful villages in Italy, is situated between Levico and Primolano and not far from the idyllic Val di Sella. It is the vibrant centre of the Valsugana and features a characteristic river landscape

Not only historic buildings and portals characterise Borgo Valsugana, but also frescos and other decorative elements, which provide the village a Venetian style. Moreover the Brenta river which crosses Borgo, splits the village into two parts. The most important sights include the S. Maria parish church, featuring a marble altar by the famous marble polisher Francesco Corradi, as well as the S. Rocco church, where you can admire Francesco Corradi's frescos, dating back to the 16th century. Typical for this locality are the markets and shops, where you can acquire local handicraft products.

Perfect for trips in the surroundings is the Val di Sella, characterised by forests and lush meadows. From Borgo Valsugana it is easy to reach Arte Sella, an internationally recognised open-air exhibition space where artworks are created exclusively with natural materials and displayed amidst meadows and woods. High above Borgo Valsugana, however, Telvana Castle guards the village as well as the whole Valsugana valley. This might also be the "brick building", which was already mentioned in the 13th century.
