Experience the Ancient Bronze Age
It was in 1929 when, to facilitate the operation of the new hydroelectric power plant, the water level was lowered and the remains of a Bronze Age pile-dwelling site emerged on the banks of Lake Ledro. Archaeological excavations in the following years brought to light numerous finds, including the more than ten thousand wooden poles that supported the housing structures, which are now preserved in the Palafitte Museum.
The museum complex consists of indoor and outdoor spaces. The former are divided into four areas explaining the alpine phenomenon of pile-dwellings and illustrating how daily life took place inside them over 4,000 years ago, thanks to perfectly preserved artefacts.
The outdoor area is used for entertaining young and old. The reconstruction of four pile-dwellings, in fact, will allow you to take a leap into the past, immersing you in rooms furnished with replicas of the remains preserved in the museum, like textiles, pottery and tools for farming and agriculture.
