Foza

In this chapter we discuss the pretty and particular municipality of Foza, nestled between the mountains of the plateau of the seven municipalities.

Foza is the second highest municipality of the plateau and, like the others, it was directly affected by the First World War, so much so that it was completely destroyed. The parish church dedicated to S. Maria Assunta, patron of the village, was immediately rebuilt after the war.

A characteristic artwork inside is “La Pala”, the only canvas painted by Francesco da Ponte the Elder in 1519. Also worth seeing is the small church of San Francesco, a place where the advance of the Austrian army once stopped. Peculiarities: between Foza and Enego there is also one of the highest viaducts in Italy, famous for bungee jumping. Country festival: San Rocco festival, which takes place on August 16th.
