Molveno is a typical mountain village, full of wooden and stone-built houses.
There are many craft shops and traditional restaurants in the colourful village centre which is traffic-free. You can enjoy the view of the lake from the terrace in Piazza Scuole. The little square, lined with old buildings with wooden roofs and balconies and decorated with beautiful flowerbeds, is typical of the Alps.
The ancient 14th century church features some stunning frescoes both inside and on its outer walls.
Also worth visiting is the former Taialacqua saw mill in the Val delle Seghe. The name of this valley, the “Valley of Sawmills”, derives from the fact that before the days of tourism wood was an important industry. Processing and selling wood began in the 1500s when Don Taialacqua recommended the construction of water-powered sawmills. Most of them have now disappeared but the Taialacqua sawmill still stands and operates in summer, giving you the chance to learn about its history and how it works.
