Destination

Andalo - piazza Dolomiti

Turn-by-turn directions

Medium easy circular route. Departure from piazza Dolomiti, we go across via Paganella, a paved uphill road. Once we arrived nearly at the top of the village, we take the road on the right that goes up the farm Tuscany and we continue straight until we reach the famous and distinctive Perini’s arch, this is the symbol of one of the oldest farms of Andalo. It’s proceeding a little later that we find the fountain of the farm, where, in ancients time, the inhabitants collected water for home and the women washed clothes. Near the fountain there is the "Capitello dei Pitti". From here, we take the road on the right side which crosses one of the most picturesque places in the village. Here you can enjoy a thrilling view of the Brenta Dolomites, typical houses and large lawns.

The route continues along a dirt road on the right that goes up another picturesque farm: Maso Monego. Once passed the cluster of houses, typically of the original structure of the village, the route descends and it reaches again via Paganella. This time, we cross the road to reach the Church of Andalo wich is charachterized by modern style with its original tent form.

We return to piazza Dolomiti through via Tenagliathat go down to the left after the church square.
