Strigno has 1,500 inhabitants and is located at an altitude of 506 m a.s.l. Surrounded by green hills, it offers a mild climate which is excellently suited for fruit cultivation. The history of the village dates back to Roman Age, the famous Via Claudia Augusta Roman road proceeds near the village. At the beginning of the 20th century Strigno became famous because of its wine which even was served at the Viennese Court. After World War I Strigno had to be rebuilt again, since then it has preserved its rural charm.
Really worth seeing are the Church of the Immaculate Conception with the medieval steeple, the Loreto Church with the Black Madonna and the centuries-old cedar in the park of the Villa Adelia. Active holidaymakers should also plan a hike to the Monte Tauro mountain and enjoy a rest at the “Bivacco Argentino Vanin”, a mountain hut which offers a gorgeous panoramic view on the entire Valsugana valley.
