The Trompia Valley is one of three main valleys in the province of Brescia in the Lombardy region with the Mella River winding through the territory for more than 20 miles. The presence of a large amount of raw materials, such as iron, made mining such a large part of this region's industry and success ever since Roman times... in fact, the Val Trompia was a center for weapons production throughout history.
The valley lies at the foot of the Brescia Alps and extends from the first mountain peaks to the north, to the lands of the Po Valley to the south. The valley can be explored along 70 miles of roads and hiking trails. The Valtrompia is a land rich in traditions, hunting, myths, legends and folk tales. There are also many sagre, fairs and festivals which take place throughout the year showcasing the most typical dishes of the local cuisine. It's well worth a visit for Voyagers wishing to discover the beauty and culture of the Italian Alps.
