Besenello, at the feet of Castel Beseno
The kingdom of Moscato Giallo runs along the cyclable Adige River
Stop in Besenello, half way between Rovereto and Trento, to visit Castel Beseno and sip a glass of Moscato Giallo. Don’t miss the “Maganalonga” in September!
Besenello is a small town lapped by the cyclable Adige River, just 10 minutes from Rovereto. It is worth stopping at, especially to see Castel Beseno, Trentino’s largest fortified complex, which you can see from the A22 Autostrada. During the Summer, the castle becomes an evocative stage for performances and historic reenactments.
The area enjoys a particularly mild climate which is ideal for producing fruit and wine, among which Moscato Giallo, the aromatic white wine par excellence of the Alta Vallagarina, the vineyards of which can be seen in the area around the hill of Castel Beseno.
In Besenello you can take mountain bike or hiking excursions. We recommend the art path which ideally connects the three towns of Calliano, Besenello and Volano, passing through places of artistic interest and natural landscapes of great charm.
We also recommend the Church of Sant’Agata, which holds two large tombstones of the Trapp family, Lords of Castel Beseno, and the ancient little church of Santa Marina.
