In and around Vattaro
The charming landscape of the Plateau Vigolana, enclosed between the Vigolana and the Marzola massifs and is characterized by large meadows and forests, which remained unchanged over time and is a natural balcony from which to admire the Alpine landscape and the Lake of Caldonazzo. Vattaro is located on the morainic terrace at the foot of the Doss del Bue – The Ox Hump (in dialect: Dos da Bugo), at an altitude of 700 meters. It is an excellent starting point for diving in the discovery of the Trentino Province and the Veneto cities of Verona and Venice within easy reach by car or train.
The Bortolazzi Palace is one of the most important and ancient buildings of Vattaro: it is located in the historic town, next to the municipal theater and is currently home to the school and library. The building dates from the late eighteenth century with its cylindrical tower and loophole under the spire. It contains frescoes by Antonio Obermuller Erasmus (Il Pistoiese) depicting moments of rural life. In the library hall, there are four paintings portraying water, air, earth and fire. Adjacent to the Palace stands the Church of San Rocco, which was restored by the Counts Bortolazzi when they built the Palace.
The Church of San Martino, the town’s patron saint and is located at the eastern end of town. The first evidence of the existence of this church dates back to 1370. The external appearance was completed in the early 18th century and in later years, the sanctuary, the sacristy and the bell tower were modified and expanded. In the 19th century, other renovations funded by the Bortolazzi Family were made. Internally the building is of simple structure, with only one nave, worthy of note is the marble altar dating from the 18 th century, carved by masters Andrea Lucchi and Valentino Villa, both natives of Trentino. On the side walls and the dome of the presbytery, there are a number of frescoes depicting the Madonna and the Saints. Vatten is a land of rural tradition: from there came the caradori, carters who transited between Trento and Feltre to sell fruits and timber.
