In this chapter we discuss the famous and characteristic village of Enego, destination of many tourists for summer or winter holidays.

The municipality of Enego is the easternmost of the Asiago plateau, overlooking its spectacular terrace on the grandiose Valsugana and on the right bank of the Brenta river. Precisely for this strategic position, over time, it first became a safe territory for the Neolithic populations, then with the first housing settlements of the Romans, in 1180 it was given as a fief to the Ezzelini to whom it remained for a century, and finally passed under the domain of the Scaligeri, who fortified it. In those years he also became part of the Federation of Seven Municipalities, more precisely in 1311, thus creating an alliance pact that went on to form a small free and independent state on the plateau, until the French invasion of 1807.

Enego

It is located along the road that from Primolano leads to the Asiago plateau, at an altitude of 800 meters, as if suspended between heaven and earth, surrounded by large fir forests, the Ortigara Mount massif and the Valsugana escarpments. However to mark the territory we thought about the First World War, a conflict that had a strong impact above all on the vegetation and its many inhabited centers, which at the time were significantly damaged, leaving behind the remains of a bloody clash, with mule tracks, tunnels, trenches and fortifications. The period of the Great War hit the entire territory in full, the area of Ortigara Mount became the main target of the Austro-Hungarian punitive expedition, called by the Italians Strafexpedition, the scene of bloody battles that caused thousands of victims.

Forte Lisser - Enego

Not far from Enego we find the most precious jewel, the splendid Piana di Marcesina, located at 1,300 meters above sea level, in a truly unique plateau, with wide pastures and majestic woods, a destination for sports and enthusiasts both in summer and winter . A territory rich in food and wine typical of these areas, expertly collected and processed according to local traditions, among the gentle slopes of this plateau.

To enhance the enchanting plain, the snow takes care of it, which in winter transforms them into Finland of Italy, as it is often called, developing an impressive ski area, with slopes for downhill and Nordic skiing, which wind through hundreds of kilometers on the Seven Municipalities Plateau.

 

Enego

A natural scenery of incredible beauty, through exciting places full of history, where man has always been in harmony with nature. Worth seeing is the beautiful church of Santa Giustina which stands on the highest point of the town and which can be reached via a long white staircase. Inside we can admire the altarpiece painted by Jacopo da Ponte dedicated, in fact, to the Saint whose name the church bears. Village festival: the "Santa Giustina Festival" takes place in the last days of September, accompanied by the transhumance of the herds of cattle, which return to the plains after the summer months. In addition, in Piazza San Marco we can admire the Torre Scaligera, what remains of a much more structured fortress built around 1330 by Cangrande della Scala, in its splendor the complex was square in shape, with four mighty towers placed at the corners connected to each other from walls.
