It takes just a few minutes from the village to reach the Madonnina of Bezzecca, a nice spot with a beautiful view over Lake Ledro. Val di Mulini stretches through meadows and barns.
Val di Mulini owes its name to the many water mills that used to be the main feature of its landscape. In 1866 part of the Third Italian War of Independence took place in Bezzecca. The fields of Santa Lucia, through which the cycling path now unfolds, was the major battleground of the Battle of Bezzecca (21 July 1866), key moment in the invasion of Trentino led by Garibaldi.
The Garibaldi and Great War Museum in Bezzecca is the right place to learn more about Garibaldi and Valle di Ledro.

Start from the church in Bezzecca. We take Via XXI Luglio and we turn right into Via Peluca. We then follow the small path on the left side to the Madonnina of Bezzecca. To return to the village we take the path starting on the other side of the altar. We turn into Via Tovi and we walk through Val die Molini. We cross the little bridge on the left side and we walk past a crucifix. At the fork we turn left. We cross the main road, we take the narrow lane on the opposite side and we follow the cycling path back to Bezzecca.
