Gleno

Gleno nestles between vineyards and in the unspoilt natural landscape of the Monte Corno nature park.

Located at 550 m asl, the hamlet of Gleno extends on the fertile south-western slope of the Cislon. Surrounded by vineyards and forests, Gleno is situated along the little road leading to Trodena. Slightly beneath the village, in the northern Valle dei Molini, the astonishingly beautiful waterfall of the Rio di Trodena plunges into the dark depths.

Gleno is by the way also known as the residence of Ettore Tolomei. Around 1906 the inventor of several translations of South Tyrolean village names purchased the Thalerhof farm in this village. As asserter of the process of Italianization of South Tyrol, Ettore Tolomei is still today a disputed personality of a sorrowful period in the history of South Tyrol.

Our tip: enjoy the calm of this spot of land, on a bench in the shadow of a tree, reading a good book. That’s pure relaxation in the heart of South Tyrol.
