OverviewThe Becco di Filadonna belongs to the massif of the Vigolana placed in the SE part of Trentino.
From its summit one of the widest and amazing panorama upon the Prealps of Trento, a wide sight on the town of Trento, on the Valsugana and the Brenta, Adamello, Presanella groups up to the summits of the dolomites of italian border.
The mountain shows rugged limestone walls full with pinnacles, crossed horizontally by ledges and big screes and look almost inaccessible: grows up SW of sud ovest di Trento and goes toward the Folgaria and Lavarone highlands, while, to the NE hangs upon the Valsugana.
Its highest summits are the Vigolana 2148mt and the Becco di Filadonna 2150mt.

The bivouac, built in 1966 by the S.A.T. of Caldonazzo near the needles of Madonnina, and the guglia del Frate , can be accessed along a suggestive and very exposed alpinistic path, towered by a band of wild and overhanging walls culminating with the highest summits.
