To the discovery of one of the little side valleys of Valle di Ledro, among green meadows and historical sites.

Val dei Molini owes its name to the many watermill which used to be located along the little river (Molino/Mulino means mill). In 1866 the plain of Santa Lucia was the location of the Battle of Bezzecca, which was fought between the Italian soldiers at the orders of Garibaldi and the Austrian Army. The little church of Santa Lucia houses some frescoes and graffiti dating back to the 14th century.
