Canale di Tenno

Overview

Nestled in the hills on the Trentino side of Lake Garda, at an altitude of 428 metres lies Canale di Tenno, a medieval village that has remained almost intact to this day. From 1211, when the first evidence of the village's existence was found, to the present day, Canale di Tenno has preserved its original layout, with the two main streets intersecting to form a small square. Intricate cobbled lanes, arches and stone houses complete this picture of times gone by. Since the Second World War, the village has been a destination for artists, inspired by the village's magnificent views and the surrounding landscape that provides a wonderful view of Lake Garda. Among them is the Turin painter Giacomo Vittone, after whom the Casa degli Artisti (Artists' House) is named, a home and meeting place for artists who visit the village from all over Europe. The village offers numerous events that highlight its beauty, art and food and wine products: among them, the most important, in August, is Rustico Medioevo, an immersion in village life in the 12th century.
