Baitone Alpino suggest: pile dwelling of Fiavè

The pile dwellings of Fiavé, together with the pile dwellings of Ledro and other 109 archaeological areas, are part of the UNESCO World Heritage. The discovery of the existence of a prehistoric settlement in the basin of the former Carera lake, which gradually became peat, took place in the mid-19th century following peat extraction works. Systematic research was undertaken from 1969 to 1976, which involved two distinct areas of the peat bog and the adjacent Dos Gustinaci, resumed in 1981 with surveys in which Italian and foreign institutes, museums and universities took part. The results of the research are documented in the nearby Museo delle Palafitte in Fiavé where the extraordinary finds found during the excavations are exhibited and where a large model with the meticulous reconstruction of the village "Fiavé 6" is visible. In the archaeological area of the Palafitte di Fiavé the remains of the poles of prehistoric buildings are visible. The site is located within the Carera nature reserve and can be visited freely. A few steps from the archaeological area there’s the Parco Archeo Natura: the visit is a fascinating journey through time in the atmosphere of the Bronze Age pile-dwelling village along an engaging path with huts reconstructed in full scale, installations, information panels, a visitor center with films and multimedia equipment, spaces dedicated to families and children. The site can be reached on foot from the town of Fiavé, in about 30 minutes, along an easy path that starts from via 3 Novembre a few hundred meters from the museum, or by car along the provincial road n. 421 following the signs for Passo del Ballino - Riva del Garda with parking at Dos Gustinaci. Look at the photos we took on this site; we have been there! And you? 😊
