Here is another way of combining a pleasant walk with a visit to the most famous sanctuary in Trentino and it’s suitable for everyone. The word “Lez” in the local dialect means irrigation channel. In fact the path follows the ancient course of the aqueduct created over 200 years ago that cuts the mountain half way up with original views of the Sanctuary of San Romedio. The walk starts as a wide cart track and then gets narrower and in two points there are passages protected by metal railings. This offers an extra sense of adventure to get the children interested in walking!

Author’s recommendation

The itinerary proposed here is a loop that joins two different “Lez” paths: Lezi di Malgolo and Lez di San Romedio. At some points the trail gets narrower and is not suitable for pushchairs. Anyone with children can stop on the way back at the play area in the village of Malgolo where there is a canopy and a bar.

Safety information

The path is very sunny and in summer we recommend wearing a hat and taking a full flask of water. The only water filling spots are at the start at the fountain in the village of Malgolo and at the Sanctuary of San Romedio.

Malgolo

Turn-by-turn directions

The walk starts from the square in the village of Malgolo. If you follow the signs you go under a portico alongside the play area until you reach the apple orchards. After passing a chapel of the Madonna on the left you notice the clear signs indicating the trail “Al Lez per San Romedio" and a wooden board with the relative map. Go over a short ramp and then carry on to a wide cart track. The trail is always on flat land and you should ignore the crossroads with the path climbing from the valley of San Romedio towards Salter. The path gets narrower in some points and a bit further along there is a first viewpoint over the Sanctuary of San Romedio. Continue along the trail which gets a little more demanding in short stretches where metal railings are provided. Then you get to a second viewpoint framed by a lovely fence and the branches of a beech tree. Then carry on until you get into the woods where the clear sign "Al Lez - San Romedio" indicates the steep descent on the right.

Then you go quickly down into the woods and find yourself at the bottom of the valley that connects Don to San Romedio where the river that goes by the same name flows. Turn right following the course of the river and in just a few minutes you get to the Sanctuary car park.

After visiting the Sanctuary and the brown bear, head downhill along the asphalt road towards Sanzeno until you meet the path in the rock that runs alongside the road slightly higher up. Keep going until you reach a right-hand bend with a wooden sign with the name “Malgolo” written by hand. Go up the first ramp and you will reach a lovely example of a calchera with an information board. Then continue uphill around two bends until you come out into the apple fields. There are no signs here but on the right you catch a glimpse of the houses in the village of Malgolo. Then continue to the right along the flat asphalt road and go back along the same stretch of path as on the way there.
