Vezza d’Oglio is a nice village located in the Upper Valle Camonica, at the meeting of two alpine valleys: Val Grande ( almost entirely within the Stelvio National Park) and Val Paghera ( in the Adamello Regional Park). Its location is the ideal place where to start a lot of excursions and discover nature. From calm walks in the wood to more challenging climbing. Interesting excursions are also the ones giving you the chance to rediscover the local history and culture, through the visit of World War One posts or the church of St Clemente, with its original Romanic style clock tower. The village itself is worth a visit. Its characteristic little streets, the rests of the gentry palace, the Federici family’s tower ( ancient lords of the valley) or the church.
