The Brembana Valley in the province of Bergamo, surrounded by the foothills of the Orobie Alps and nestled into the heart of upper Lombardy, owes its strong cultural identity to its orographic conformation, which in the past made reaching the plains and the surrounding valleys a rather difficult task.
Tradition, culture, natural resources and often unknown works of art are distributed along the branches of the valley to form a harmonious whole.
A visit to the Brembana Valley is like stepping back in time, with its ancient villages that still preserve traces of the area's ancient crafts, an adventure between natural environments that are still intact, a gastronomic journey to discover the traditional products, a search for treasures and architecture, including the Art Nouveau architectures of San Pellegrino Terme, the precious works preserved in the churches and museums along with original rural architecture.
All types of sports can also be enjoyed throughout the year with downhill ski resorts and places for practicing mountaineering, rock climbing, mountain biking, cross-country ski trails, ski touring, cycling, canoeing and hiking along a vast network of trails, from easy walks to a multi-day hike.
Various events are also held in the Brembana Valley in summer: dancing, gastronomic events, concerts, theatre performances, folk festivals, games, sports competitions, cultural events, exhibitions, markets, tours, group tours and mountain festivals.
