Cavalese

Description

Autonomous administrative, cultural and historical center of Val di Fiemme, Cavalese is a charming tourist resort in the province of Trento, located on the terminal and the large sunny plain, which characterizes the entire valley. The area of ​​Cavalese was inhabited since ancient times: it is, in fact, documented the presence of prehistoric settlements along the chain of Lagorai (Mesolithic), the Dos Zeal (Iron Age) and the Parco della Pieve (age Late Roman). The first settlements rose along the Rio Gambis but, because of the continuous and disastrous flooding of the latter, the population of the then center of Cadrubio was forced, in the XII century, to move further inland. During the XVI century, things changed with the work of containment of Rio, with the creation of picturesque banks, mills and sawmills. In the XVIII century, thanks to the contribution of the noble and powerful families who established their residences here, Cavalese became one of the most important cultural and economic center of the entire Val di Fiemme. The town was seat of the painting school of Giuseppe Alberti, in which also Michelangelo and Francesco Unterberger started their apprenticeships with other famous artists known as cavalesani. It was also the seat of the Magnificent Community of Fiemme, officially established with the Gebardini Agreement of 1111-1112.
Because of its wide and varied tourist offer, Cavalese can be visited and appreciated at all times of the year. During the Spring and Summer months it is possible, in fact, to engage in long walks outdoors on foot, horseback or mountain bike, reaching mountain shelters enjoying the culinary recipes of the Val di Fiemme traditions, while in Winter, snow lovers can enjoy the alpine ski slopes and cross-country skiing or be captivated by the beauty of the landscapes bleached white, with snow shoes.
