In former times the village of Smarano, inhabited by 500 citizens, was an area of settlement for Roman people, which is also proven by archeologic findings. At Torri e.g. fundaments of a Roman construction were found.
Worthwhile is the Assunta church dating back to the 17th - 18th century, which was destroyed by a fire in 1759 AD and rebuilt in Gothic and Renaissance style. Inside there is a precious mechanic organ dating back to the year 1993. This is also where international courses for organists take place. Another institution you absolutely have to visit is the Arts and Antiquity gallery (Galleria d’Arte e d’Antiquariato), as many artists, painters, restorers, metal and wood craftsman live in the village, who try to revive old traditions.
Those who would like to enjoy a great view should come to the old bridge “pons altus” above the rivers Noce and Cles. From this bridge you can enjoy a great panoramic view on the Val di Non mountains, the Maddalene mountain range as well as the Brenta Dolomites.
