Pradèl is a lovely grassy plateau lying on the wooded slopes of the Brenta mountain group, extending to the south and overlooking Molveno Lake. As it is flat, in the past it was used for farming (hay pastures and grazing).

The Brenta group ranges from the early Triassic to the Cretaceous (about 185 million years). The main features can be found in the rocks of the end of the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods which bear witness to the opening up of the Lombardy basin and the evolution of the western edge of the Trento platform.
