Avigna is situated at an altitude of 847 m, some 10 km from the main village of San Genesio and above the entrance to Val Sarentino. The name “Avigna” is derived from the Latin word avia meaning “remote location”. Over the centuries the name of the hamlet changed. Today’s access road was built in 1980. Until then Avigna could only be reached from Rafenstein and San Genesio.
