Mori, between Rovereto and Garda
Don’t miss the spectacular “via ferrata” near the Santuario di Montalbano!
Stop at Mori, on your bike ride toward Lake Garda. Walk in the trenches of Nagià Grom, participate in the “autumn Ganzega” and enjoy the panorama from the sanctuary.
Mori is traversed by a bike path that leads to the Lake Garda, skirting the biotope of lake Loppio. Facing Monte Baldo and sheltered by the Val di Gresta, it’s one of the most important towns of Vallagarina.
With its thirteen hamlets, Mori encopasses the wide territory of the Valle del Cameras with a prized historical, archaeological and artistic heritage.
The area is rich in prehistoric sites, including the “Grotta del Colombo” and is dominated by the hill of Nagià Grom. Thanks to the considerable restoration work carried out by the Gruppo Alpini di Mori, you can visit the trenches secured with a grid, the caves, shelters, the artillery and observation posts.
Another must-see is the Santuario di Montalbano, built in 1556 and dedicated to the Madonna dell’Annunziata. Near it you will find the renovated “via ferrata” and the boulder climbing park, ideal for the more experienced climbers.
The old town center is located around via Teatro, which takes its name from the lovely town theater and houses many Eighteenth century buildings, among which are the palazzi Delaiti, Salvadori and Salvotti. Among the most important buildings, the deanery of Santo Stefano (XII century).
Mori offers an interesting season of prose and tourist events for all age groups. Rich in cultural, sports and recreation associations, each year it hosts festivals and large events, such as the Festival of Spring and the Autumn Ganzega.
In May 23, 2013 the velodrome of Mori was the starting point of the 18th stage of the Giro d’Italia, the uphill time trial of Vallagarina Mori – Polsa di Brentonico, was described as “the most beautiful uphill time trial in the Giro d’Italia of the last 20 years”.
Not far from the town, stands the bell tower and the ruins of the romanesque church of San Biagio (XI century), with a beautiful vista of Vallagarina.
