Rio Liccio

Rio Liccio is home to a carpentry workshop that is more than 100 years old and tells the story of the agricultural village near Perca

Rio Liccio or Litschbach is the name of one of the eight districts of Perca and also the name of the village stream. The small hamlet, where only 30 people live, lies below the 1,000 metre mark, a little below the Val Pusteria state road west of the much larger village of Nessano. "Luzzil" already meant "small" in the Middle Ages - the name of the village derives from this term.

Nature is the attraction here, as it is in the entire upper part of the green Val Pusteria valley. The stream flows through the village, and just below there is the Rienza, into which it flows. The Rienza is known for its river meadows, which are protected as the Rienza Floodplains, a biotope, and extend between Perca and Monguelfo to Dobbiaco. The "Weiher in der Aue", a fishing pond behind the sports zone of Perca, is located in this area and is a popular excursion destination in summer.

You can also experience the riverbank from the "Pusterbike" Cycle Path, which runs from Brunico past the Rienza Wetlands near Perca to Rio Liccio and then on towards Monguelfo. In winter, it is only 2 km to the train station next to the valley station of the Ried Cable Car in Perca, which takes you to the Plan de Corones Skiing Area. Quieter are the winter hiking paths, the sledge run and the Earth Pyramids, which are all on the other side of the road, uphill towards Vila di Sopra and Plata.
