The Tajalacqua Sawmill

Culture, traditions and ancient ways to use the Alpine resources emerge during a visit to the ancient Venetian Tajalacqua Sawmill, in Molveno, in the Brenta Dolomites.

If you are interested in the old professions, the ways to exploit the scarce water resources of the Alps, before the tourism started, to get to know the hidden soul of the local inhabitants, you cannot miss a visit to the ancient Tajalacqua Sawmill, in Molveno, in the Brenta Dolomites.

The ancient Tajalacqua Sawmill (Via Lungolago, in front of the campsite) was built in the 16th century, as a consortium, by the inhabitants of Molveno, supported and incited by the then priest, Don Tajalacqua, who wanted to improve the economic, agricultural and cattle-breeding conditions of the population. Afterwards, other sawmills were built on “Rio Molini”, a conveyance stream of Massò, but they have now disappeared.

The valley where the sawmills were built, goes from the “Ischia” plain towards the heart of the Dolomites and it is called nowadays too “Val delle Seghe” (Valley of the Sawmills). The sawmill was, and still is, water-driven.
