Trepalle
A large open amphitheatre that descends gently towards the valley floor, surrounded by jagged mountain tops that stand out against the backdrop of a clear blue sky ...
In the summer, the immense open grasslands are broken here and there by wooden cottages and the white walls of the parish church which is the highest in Europe. In winter a great blanket of virgin snow make the dark wooden cottages, dotted along the mountain side, stand out in stark contrast against its whiteness. This is how Trepalle appears as you come over the Foscagno Pass, the watershed between the northern and southern alps, between the Po catchment basin and that of the Danube.
Trepalle - a parish/ward of Livigno, 1.900 - 2.250 m. The Highest permanently inhabited parish in Europe. Trepalle in summer is a paradise for trekkers on foot, mountain bike or on horseback, into Vallaccia, Val Trela or Val di Tort. Trepallein winter is an immense open blanket of snow, sheer heaven for alpine skiers, snowboarders, telemark skiers and off piste skiing.
