Water and nature in the heart of the Brembana Valley
Zogno offers visitors countless opportunities, among breath-taking views, outdoor activities and delicious local delicacies. This small municipality nestled in the Brembana Valley, the origins of which date back to 1100, is just a 30-minute drive from Bergamo.
Its historic centre is built around the 15th-century Parish Church of San Lorenzo, which is built on the ruins of a medieval castle. If you are interested in learning more about the history and traditions of the Brembana Valley, we highly recommend visiting the San Lorenzo Museum and the Valley Museum. At the Soldier’s Museum, you will find plenty of material on the Alpine troops and military corps in the area.
Visitors who love outdoor activities can hop on a mountain bike or e-bike and ride along the Val Brembana cycle path, which starts in Zogno and reaches Piazza Brembana in 21 kilometres, with an altitude difference of 200 metres. Running along what was once the route of the train tracks, due to its gentle slope it is suitable for all levels of proficiency.
It is also worth stopping by the Grotte delle Meraviglie, the first in Italy to open to tourists, which you can walk through for about 70 metres. But Zogno is best known for the Terme di Bracca, an over-15,000-square-metre spa facility, and for the Bracca and Flavia water springs in Ambria, upstream of the Orrido di Serina.
