The last stage of our Path sees the arrival at the Sanctuary of San Romedio, the final objective. It is a pleasant walk of medium length, moderate gradients and fascinating landscapes on the lower Val di Non. We visit Castel Thun, a splendid mansion that gave birth to the powerful Thun family and at least ten bishops in Trentino and Austria. In Dardine we find the beautiful church of S.Marcello that preserves valuable medieval frescoes. Shortly afterwards we come to the Parish Church of Torra, in the square of which it is possible to admire the low and middle valley in which villages and castles stand out in a cultivated area setting. On the outskirts of Taio we find Castel Bregher. In Coredo, in the upper part of the village, stands Palazzo Nero, which was the seat of the bishop's jurisdiction and sadly famous for the witch trials of the seventeenth century. The Jacopeo Path that begins at the Basilica of the Holy Martyrs of Sanzeno, the main place of Christianity in our valley, has as its heart the Sanctuary of San Romedio, it the symbol of the life and experience of the pilgrim and hermit Romedio who, after renouncing worldly possessions, set off on the pilgramage to Rome ut was so enchanted by the harsh landscape of this valley, that he decided to remain and to devote the rest of his life entirely to God, to the good of the people and to an intimate contact with nature.
The stamp to be affixed on the Pilgrim's Credential can be found near:
Dardine - church of S.Marcello
Coredo - Church of the Finding Holy Cross
Shrine of St. Romedio - at the Shrine shop there is a book where you can sign and comment on the Path you have just completed.
The Path is well signposted, with the presence of the symbol of the stylised shell in yellow and various tables indicating the way. You can follow ancient paths connecting small towns and ancient roads that led to the sanctuaries, destination of pilgrimages. There are short stretches of roads with little traffic.
Please note that the practicability of the itineraries in a mountain environment is strictly linked to the contingent conditions and is therefore influenced by natural phenomena, environmental changes and weather conditions. For this reason, the information contained in this page may have changed. Before leaving for a tour, make sure the path you will approach is still accessible by contacting the owner of the mountain hut, the alpine guides or the visitor centres of the nature parks, the info offices of the local tourist board.
Jacopeo Way, we head to Castel Thun, which was an important seat of the powerful family of Thun who owned other manors in the valleys of Non and Sole (Bragher, Caldes and Castelfondo). Proceed and you will come to the small church of San Martino, recently restored, and the small village of Nosino, then you will touch Toss and cross the valley of the Pongaiola stream to reach Dardine. Here, a visit to the precious church of San Marcello is a must: a show of 15th century frescoes awaits us. Proceed towards Mollaro and then Tuennetto and you will arrive at the ancient Parish Church of Torra where you can admire a beautiful view of the valley. We leave again heading towards Segno where, in the square, stands the majestic statue dedicated to Father Kino. We then cross vast areas with modern fruit orchards alternating with woods until we reach Castel Bragher. Then we proceed along the asphalt road, paying attention to the presence of modest vehicular traffic, and we reach Coredo: "Fior de la Valada". Leaving the village, we walk towards the lakes of Coredo and Tavon along part of Viale dei Sogni. Once you have reached the lakes, you can take a refreshing break before plunging back into the woods that will quickly lead the pilgrim to the Sanctuary of San Romedio along an initially steep path that then skirts the Verdes stream.

4land Cartina Escursionistica della Val di Non, scala 1:25.000
Anyone who sets out and wants to get to their destination without problems must wear a good pair of comfortable shoes, preferably with a sculpted sole (like Vibram) and ankle protection (like hiking pedules), but in which the foot is firmly fixed to prevent the formation of blisters or, worse still, risk a sprain. It is also good to have a stick (or better still, telescopic sticks) to help you along the way, especially in some more challenging passages.
