At the foot of the Monti Lessini lies the medieval town of Ala

Ala, important farming and craft town, lies at the foot of the Monti Lessi, in the southern part of Vallagarina. Its historical center is a true architectural gem, probably one of the loveliest in whole Trentino. Its paved streets, courtyards and the typical medieval plan form of Villa Alta are really amazing.
Worth visiting are recently restored Palazzo Angelini and Palazzo de’ Pizzini, frequented by Napoleon and Mozart and now seat of Museo del Pianoforte Antico. Ala was famed for manufacturing and selling silk velvet in the eighteenth century.
A festival called Città di Velluto (Velvet City) takes place annually in Ala to celebrate that age and the whole city house music, art and performance events.
As if to underline the importance of water, 67 fountains are to be found in the town as a symbol of hospitality to everyone, both travelers of the past and today’s visitors.
Ala provides dramatic walking opportunities in the Valle di Ronchi, with its unspoiled natural heritage. Nordic walking has become very popular here as in the whole Lessina mountain range, where you can enjoy walking through meadows, mountain flowers, beech- and wild cherry trees.
