The Museum in the Municipio, Via Larga, near the cathedral,
contains a collection of bronzes and other antiquities from S. Tyrol,
Egyptian antiquities, majolicas, Japanese curiosities, etc.
Among the numerous old palaces, the painted facades of which
ill conceal the poverty within, may be mentioned Palazzo Zambelli,
opposite the Hotel Europa, dating from the 16th cent, (fine view
from the garden), and Palazzo Tabarelli, in the Contrada del Teatro,
said to have been built from designs by Bramante,

To the E. of the town, and N. of the large Piazza d'Armi, is situated
the extensive chateau of Buon Consiglio, formerly the seat of the Prince-
Bishops of Trent, and now a barrack, which contains remains of ancient
frescoes. The colossal, circular Torre di Augusto is supposed to date from
the time of the Romans.
The rocky eminence of Verruca, or Dos Trento (950ft.), on the right
bank of the Adyge, was fortified in 1857, and affords a fine point of view.
The terrace of the Capuchin Church on the E. side of the town also com¬
mands a good view. On the S.W. side of the town lies the interesting
Campo Santo, or cemetery. In a wild ravine to the E. of Trent, near
the (72 hr.) Ponte Alto and below the road leading into the Val Sugana
(see below), is a fine waterfall formed by the Fersina, which has been
rendered easily accessible by a new path.
