The Pinè Plateau.



I often do a day trip to the Pinè Plateau. It is only some kilometers far from the village where I live.

This plateau is situated over 900 meters on the sea level., so it is the right place to go to avoid some hot places in the summer; as Trento.

There are several villages on this plateau.

I' ve be in this area lots of times. After some years I decided to re visit some places here.

Baselga di Pinè; one of the main villages at the plateau, is situated at some 960 meters on the sea level.

This village has a good choice of hotels, restaurants, cafes and shops. It is a very popular tourist resort.


One of the sights to see in the old core of Baselga di Pinè is the church of Santa Maria Assunta.

This church was mentioned nel 1220. It was torn down and rebuilt in the XV century.

It was enlarged around 1535 and also between 1729 and 1743.

It is a small church.



There are some beautiful frescoes into the church.


Once you have visited the church you could stroll around the old core of Baselga. It is really nice.



Part of the square in the old core.


There is a lake in Baselga di Pinè; the lake of Serraia.

This lake is of glacial origin.


You can swim or go boating on the lake.

You can also walk around it.

Along the lake there are several cafes and I think some restaurants.

There is a playground area for children near the lake.


Miola is a hamlet of Baselga di Pinè.



In Miola you can find only a couple of restaurants and cafes and a supermarket.



Here you see part of a square in this hamlet.


There are mostly ancient stone houses in Miola.



At Christmas time Miola turns into "el paes dei presepi". Translation; the village of cribs.

Cribs are created at various places in Miola.


Lago delle Piazze is an artificial lake surrounded by some beaches and a large meadow.


Even on this lake you can swim or have a boat trip.

Also at lago delle Piazze there is even a playground area for children.


Hotel Pineta is a hotel overlooking this lake. I usually have a cup of coffee here before my stroll along the lake.


One day I am going to have lunch at this hotel.

Some of the buildings remind me very much of Austria. Lovely. Hope all is well with you.
