The village of Negrar covers an area of around 40 sq km and, despite the heavy urbanisation
due to its magnificent position, it still preserves many of its original rural features.
Above the hilly areas enclosing the valley it is not hard to find small isolated hamlets characterised by stone buildings immersed in pretty woodland. Many natural elements coexist harmoniously with those bond to the work of man: cultivated fields fenced off by the"marogne", dry-stone walls, are mingled in with portions of more wilder, green areas rich in springs which show how the Valpolicella was when man was only a guest in this land.
Monuments and churches to visit
and the churches of San Vito, San Peretto, Arbizzano and Torbe.
The many Veneto villas in the area are also important architectural records covering the period from the 14th to the
18th centuries. These include Villa Rizzardi with its atmospheric gardens, Villa La Sorte in San Peretto, Villa
Mosconi in Novare and the medieval and mighty Villa Salvaterra in Prun.
Casa 12 and Casa 13, the two farmhouses of Corte Spinosa, are both a comfortable accommodation chance, ideal for holidays but even suitable for families that want to spend a few days in Valpolicella to assist a relative or a friend.
