The trail begins among the apple orchards and then proceeds along a delightful path, along which you’ll find multiple panoramic spots and benches to enjoy the sunshine and the lakeside breeze.

Author’s recommendation

The best time of year for the view of the lake is late Spring and early Summer, when the waters of this artificial lake are at their highest level.

Turn-by-turn directions

Leave your car at the car park near Terrazza dei Sapori in Cagnò, where you will find a junction between the road from Cles across Lake Santa Giustina and the road that connects Mostizzolo with Cagnò.

Continue on foot downhill for about twenty metres towards the lake and in front of Terrazza dei Sapori you’ll notice a small cement road with a sign for the Hermitage of San Gallo. Take this downhill road and cross the apple orchards. Continue further until you find the wooden signs inviting you to turn left. This is where a beautiful trail with a wooden fence leads down towards the ruins of the Hermitage of San Gallo.

There are plenty of tables and benches along the trail, and a small detour takes you to a beautiful panoramic point on a rocky spur, where you can enjoy the lakeside breeze. Walk for another 10 minutes to reach the hermitage, of which only the ruins remain, beneath the large natural rock roof which had been chosen as a place of retreat.

Go back the way you came.
