The woods, rocks, mountain streams and waterfalls of Valsabbia are all untouched by the hand of man.
The valley is the ideal place for a holiday dedicated to relaxation, sport and the discovery of both large and small works of art and history. The river Chiese flows down from the Adamello range of mountains and runs into Lake Idro, one of the prettiest in the Alps, while higher up the valley skiing facilities and in spring on and off skiing are available at Gaver.
Gavardo stands at the entrance to Valsabbia and has a typical old town centre with houses that face onto the River Chiese.
The history of the area and nearby Lake Garda is celebrated in the Archaeological Museum of Valsabbia (piazza San Bernardino, 2) with collections of fossils and prehistoric, Roman and medieval finds.
The village is dominated by the Sanctuary and its two churches which have been built on the remains of the medieval Castle in which 16th century frescoes can still be seen.
Vestone is one of the largest towns in the valley. The 16th century Parish church with its stone doorway, the frescoed church of San Stefano in Nozza and 25th century church in Promo are all worth seeing. A few miles away there is Mura where a masterpiece of a wooden altar by “Boscai family” can be seen in the Parish church.
