Two separate small settlements are found in the village of Penia: Lorenz and Verra. Very few families live there nowadays but they are truly enchanting places as well as being very characteristic.
Verra (1675 m), whose Ladin name Vera means, ‘fertile meadow’, used to be the highest settlement in Trentino. Here visitors can still see the typical constructions of times gone by. The church dedicated to the Holy Virgin Mary ‘Mater Amabilis’, with its bell gable, should certainly not be missed.
Lorenz (1636 m) also has a church, which is dedicated to Mary the Helper (1732). The crucifix is the work of local artist Andrea Soraperra and was created to replace the one stolen in 1979.
