Suggestions
  • Cloisters of the convent at Campo Lomaso, a haven of spirituality, culture and hospitality since the 17th century and home to Franciscan monks for hundreds of years. Within these walls you still feel the sense of togetherness which was the hallmark of their charitable mission. A visit here is a moving experience;
  • Nestled within a thicket on the outskirts of the Piana di Lomaso, Castel Campo is a monumental castle complex featuring three towers enclosing an elegant medieval courtyard. For guided visits please contact +39 3713591125;
  • Inside the gothic-renaissance Assunta's Church (1251), on the village square, there are beautiful altars in wood and marble and frescoes belonging to the late-gothic and renaissance periods.

Punto di partenza
Campo Lomaso
Directions

The road carries on through “Piana del Lomaso”, an area of fertile land yielding potatoes, corn and apples. After a few hundred metres, at the crossing, you will see on the right the sign for a private road leading to Castel Campo. The castle is now privately owned by the Rasini Family and can be visited only via bookings (tel. +39 0465 702020). 

The castle includes two corner towers rising on its south side, an extensive area of walkways and wards inside the walls leading to the servants’ chambers, the masters’ keep and to the upper mediaeval courtyard. This ancient castle, probably dating back to the X century, once was owned by the Campos, acquired by the Hacks in 1458, followed by the Trapps in 1470 and the Rautenstrauch in 1890. Since 1920 it is property of the Rasini family. In the chapel, around the courtyards, the galleries as well as the communal areas you will find fine frescoes, dated XV century, and some more recent ones painted by maestro Carlo Donati in the early 1900. As you leave the castle on your right, resume the walk through the forest and continue on up a short climb, until you reach an area of grassland. Pass through a walnut tree plantation and arrive at Maso Pacomio; from here, start walking down to the left until you pass S. Vigilio’s church. The road continues leading first to a small bridge, surrounded by trees, and then to the open fields around Lomaso. Take the first paved road on the right towards Dasindo. As you approach the first house in the village, which has been newly built, turn left and after a few metres take another left until you reach a shrine sheltered by a shady tree. From the shrine, continue to the right along the paved road and through the crop fields until you reach Campo, the starting point of this walk.

How to get there
From Ponte Arche/Comano Terme go in the direction of Fiavè/Ballino Pass. After 2,5 km, when you arrive in Campo Lomaso, turn right towards the church.
Where to park
Free parking lot in Campo Lomaso, near the church.
