Agola Valley

previous up next

This is a lateral valley of the Rendena Valley. It runs from north to south from the Vivaio Brenta nursery to the slopes of the Monte Sabion and Palon dei Mughi peaks, at which point the Nardis Valley starts, wending its way eastwards. The Agola Valley (“agola” probably means “aquila” or eagle) is bounded in the east by the Crozzon di Val d’Agola and Cima Prà dei Camosci peaks; the Fracingli peaks separate it from the Brenta Valley. The main tourist attraction is Lake Valagola.This is a small lake on the western slopes of the Brenta group, lying at the end of a clearing bound by the River Tosa and by Monte Sabion. Its wates contain rainbow trout and minnow. The valley has a highly-prized wood (called Cantino) which has been managed over the centuries by the Regole, a local independent administrative body.
