Since 1800 the ravine near Ponte Alto has fascinated the inhabitants and visitors of the city of Trento. The Orrido is a deep canyon carved out by the tumultuous waters of the Fersina stream over thousands of years. Here in 1500 some of the world's oldest hydraulic works were built to ward off floods in the city.
The two bridles give rise to spectacular waterfalls over 40 meters high that make their way between the layers of red rock, creating spectacular plays of light.
In case of particular atmospheric conditions (ice, snow), possible closure for safety reasons will be assessed from time to time.
For safety reasons, the gorge is accessible only if accompanied by a guide.
