The ancient village of Bienno stands on a hill dominated by the Dosso del Cerreto mountain, in Val Camonica, where the Grigna stream flows.

Bienno has one of the valley's most beautiful and well-preserved medieval town centres, built over Roman foundations. The waterwheel was the technological element on which the local metallurgy industry was based, which allowed, thanks to the wealth brought by this activity, the construction of beautiful buildings. The Ethnographic Iron Museum expertly tells the story of this industry that was crucial to the village of Bienno and its development.

However, in order to experience a full-immersion into the past you have to visit the old town, where traces of the Middle Ages and Renaissance abound and where at every turn you will find charming sights such as a coat of arms, a fountain or a large wall of exposed stone.
