The itinerary crosses Borgo di Frapporta, the oldest party of the village of Tenno, where the houses are large and made of stone, constructed one next to the other and crossed by narrow and characteristic streets. The Borgo is dominated by Tenno Castle, which dates back to 1100: it was conquered first by a number of feudal counts, then by the Bishopric of Trento. In 1700 it was badly damaged, and then a number of private individuals bought it and renovated it. After a brief stretch in Borgo di Frapporta, take the small road on the left that leads to Grom hill: from here you will enjoy a fantastic view of Lake Garda. Continue along the path, descending, and you will reach the small church of San Lorenzo: it was built in the year 1000 and contains, pictures dating back to the 13th century. The last part of the path passes in front of large terraces cultivated with olive trees.

Turn-by-turn directions

Start from Tenno, near the bulletin board “Sentieri dei Piccoli Camminatori”. Just above the burg, you will arrive at the hill of Grom, where you can enjoy a wonderful view of Lake Garda. Keep following the path and you will find the little church of S.Lorenzo, which was built in 1000 and safeguards paintings dating back to the XIII century.

Das Castello ist in Privatbesitz und (war zumindest heute?) nicht zu besichtigen. Aber die Runde ist trotzdem hübsch: Im Dorf sind die Häuser alle unter Erhalt der ehemaligen Außenwände gebaut und passen so gut zur Burg. Vom Aussichtspunkt hat man einen guten Blick ins Tal und nach Riva del Garda herunter. Und die alte Kirche ist auch nett. Nebei gibt's auf der Runde noch einen Geocache zu heben.
