Vie ferrate in Trentino: where only eagles dare!

The first via ferrata was constructed in 1869 on the south-western ridge of the Großglockner, Austria, but between the end of the 19th century and the First World War, many Alpine Clubs created via ferratas with increasingly daring routes.
However, it was especially during the Great War that there was a great impetus for the creation of ferratas, used by soldiers to reach outposts on the peaks of the Alpine chain.

Between the 1930s and 1940s, it was built by the (SAT) Società Alpinisti Tridentini, nelle Dolomiti di Brenta, il monumentale Sentiero delle Bocchette di Brenta, a spectacular via ferrata that allows you to discover that group of mountains without ever reaching any of the peaks, a feature that had characterised all via ferratas until then.
An interweaving of mountains, nature, history and culture... offering the magic of exploring environments rich in emotion and the fruit of our mountain past.

Via Ferrata for everyone. The approach is very short (about twenty minutes walk). Funny aerial passages, with the final "drop" of 25 meters high, lead to the strong Barba di Fior, used in the First World War.
