The town is located at 1000 meters above sea level, offering a beautiful landscape surrounded by nature. During all seasons the mount Presolana (2521 m), also known as “Orobie Alps’ Queen”, allows mountain lovers to experience a huge range of activities. In winter, you can spend wonderful days at our ski resorts “Monte Pora” and “Passo Della Presolana”, by hiring a snowboard, skis, or a snowmobile trip. During spring and summer, you can enjoy a ride on a mountain-bike or e-bike, a climb in “Valle dei Mulini” or a hike on high-altitude trails. The village is actually divided into three hamlets called “Castione” (the main one), “Bratto” and “Dorga”, but you cannot forget to also visit small localities such as Rusio, peculiar to its historical and rural architecture, and Lantana, with its evocative sanctuary.
