Ancient village with local Rendena rustic architecture. Its solid buildings are dotted with portals and sacred murals. Narrow streets yield scenic glimpses of original granite fountains awash with water.
Nestling on the western slopes of Mount Toff, Bocenago is the Val Rendena village that has the best-preserved examples of original local rural architecture, which is closely linked to the forestry and pastoral economy. The buildings typically have sturdy rectangular masonry basements containing the hearth and stable structures, with light wooden structures erected on top.
The portals are almost always in granite and the broad façades have balcony features. In the centre of the village is the uniquely designed fountain consisting of two large stone structures – one of granite symbolising the Adamello and one of dolomite with reference to the Brenta Dolomites. Walking through the village, you can breathe the atmosphere of times past and appreciate the local people’s desire to preserve their rich history and its traditions and culture, integrating it with the forward march of time.
This is one of the most beautiful panoramic points of the valley and is visible from almost all of the Rendena area.
