A lost and partly abandonned power plant, with a very nice architecture.

My experience, Explo description: 

The power plant was built at the early 20th century. In 2002, it was converted into a center for performing arts.

The building hosts many rooms that can be rented for performances. It is closed most of the time, expect when shows take place.

My personal recommendations: 

It is hard to access the plant. However, you can get around it and walk uphill into the forest. There, only about 150m from the plant (up hill), you can discover impressive installations: like a huge penstok, a water reservoir and abooce all, a canal going north. Go north along the canal, you will rapidly walk in a strange landscape, among huge pieces of rock. An easy and nice walk.

How getting there: 

The plant s located 500m from Dro.

Arriving by train, get off at Trento. Then take a bus service to Dro. Trentino Trasporti schedules are easily available from their website www.ttspa.it
