The Rocchetta is a small headland just 700 meters asl located south of the town of Borgo Valsugana in Trentino.

Together with Mount Ciolino, it has always been a natural barrier in the middle of the Valsugana valley and for this reason even during WWI it has worked as observation point for both parties, Italian and Austrian.

The historic site of Rocchetta, open all year with free admission, can be reached by car, bike and bus in just 5 minutes from Borgo Valsugana, following the signs for Val di Sella and at km 4 taking the right towards "Vivaio San Giorgio"". You can also reach the destination on foot along recently restored paths and trails.
