The small settlement of Piavenna is located in the homonymous side valley at 1,720 m asl.
The Valle di Plawenn branches off at the hamlet of Alsago at the Piana di Malles and stretches to the Alpine pasture of Piavenna (2,000 m) to the Mittereck (2,909 m), a mountain that belongs to the Oetztal Alps. The small village of Piavenna is located in the lower part of the valley and has got about 50 inhabitants.
The village developed round the residence of Piavenna, which since its construction in the 12th century was owned by the Lords of Piavenna. From the village you can perfectly start your walks, heading for summits in the high-Alpine area, e.g in the Vallunga. In winter, there is a toboggan run, stretching from Piavenna to S. Valentino alla Muta.
