Along the forest road from San Giovanni al Monte to Malga Vigo is the easiest way to reach the archaeological area of San Martino. The road is mainly flat.

The archaeological area of San Martino Lundo/Lomaso was an ancient medieval fortified village, covering a surface of 10.000 square metres (the fortified area was of 17.000 square metres). The area was protected by a 1,5 km long wall.

The view opens on the wide pastures of Malga Vigo and on the Brenta Dolomites. 

Author’s recommendation

There are 4 sites in the surroundings dedicated to San Martino, bishop of Tours and knight, protector of fortified areas (Campi, Lomaso, Bleggio Superiore and Stenico)

San Giovanni al Monte

Turn-by-turn directions

From the little church continue straight on the asphalt road, then take the path on the left that reconnects with the road before Marcarie, where you keep going on the forestry road (signs SAT 425).

After a short ascent, you start going down or flat until the pastures of Malga Vigo. Go beyond the building of the dairy and after a few minutes, you find the fork to the archaeological area of San Martino. Turn to the left and go up until the ruins on the top.

The way back is along the same track.

Equipment

You need to be wearing the right clothing and take the proper gear when you go hiking in the mountains. Even on relatively short easy outings make sure to take all you need so you don't run into trouble if things take an unexpected turn, for example a storm blows up or you have a sudden drop in energy levels.

What should you take when you go on a hike?

What you should have in your rucksack (for a day trip a 25/30L capacity should do):

  • water canteen (1L)
  • snacks (e.g. mixed dried fruit or chocolate)
  • First aid kit
  • windproof jacket
  • fleece
  • change of t-shirt and socks (in a plastic bag)
  • make sure to wear or at least bring a pair of long trousers
  • hat
  • sun screen
  • sunglasses
  • gloves
  • whistle to attract attention in an emergency

Emergency telephone number Mountain Rescue 112

 

Make sure you're wearing the right footwear for the trail and season. The going can get rough and rocky underfoot and a pair of hiking boots will protect you from sprains.

When wet, a grassy slope, rocky slab or steep trail can be dangerous unless you are wearing the proper footwear.

And finally... ... don't forget to bring your camera! You'll need it to capture the stunning views you come across all over Garda Trentino. And if you like, you can share your memories with us at #GardaTrentino.
