In this chapter we discuss the pretty and particular municipality of Foza, nestled between the mountains of the seven municipalities plateau.
Foza is the second highest municipality on the seven municipalities plateau and, like the others, has been directly affected by the First World War, so much so that it was completely razed. This small and pretty village is strategically located, in fact it is positioned along the road that leads from the Asiago plateau to the characteristic village of Valstagna, a path much loved by cyclists, for the breathtaking view and for the many hairpin bends present.
A valley rich in history and legends, narrated by the village elders and endorsed by the smugglers of the Valsugana canal and the Alta via del Tabacco. Furthermore, Foza is located along the passage way that leads from the tourist center of Asiago to the curious town of Enego, and to its spectacular plain of Marcesina.
An enchanted place, where among the many colored mushrooms the gnomes chase each other, and the magic comes to life, in an exciting territory and with many relaxing landscapes, ideal for hiking, mountain biking and horse riding.
After the war, the small town was immediately rebuilt, concentrating it around the parish church dedicated to San Maria Assunta, the patroness of the town. A feature not to be missed inside is the altarpiece, the only canvas painted by Francesco da Ponte il Vecchio in 1519. Also worth seeing is the Church of San Francesco, the place where the advance of the Austrian army once stopped.
For the more enterprising, also, between Foza and Enego, there is one of the highest viaducts in Italy, famous for bungee jumping, a unique opportunity to experience an unforgettable emotion. Do not miss the typical village festival, that is the San Rocco festival, which takes place on August 16th. Throughout the territory of Foza and in the surrounding area you can find numerous trattorias and restaurants, which serve typical food and wine specialties of the area, or small dairies that produce an excellent local cheese.
