The hill-climbing city: urban explorations between the sacred and the profane on the ‘Hill of Trento’

Our destination is the ‘Collina di Trento’, Trento’s Hill, namely the hill that from the South-Eastern area of the city gently rises towards Mount Marzola and the hamlets of Povo and Villazzano.

Today we will lead you on a discovery tour of a different, unusual and adventurous Trento. We will ‘take to the hills’ to view the city from high up. We will travel back in time to the Council of Trento.

We will tell you how the nobles of that century spent their summer holidays. And we will explain how some of the older religious traditions were born, with stories of flying houses and of plague-curing saints.
