Frassineto

Nestling between forests and meadows near the high plateau of the Salto, there is the small village of Frassineto.

Frassineto has got some 200 inhabitants and is located only a stone’s throw from Meltina, the chief village. In the village of Frassineto you can enjoy the tranquillity, far away from the main traffic routes in the valley. Moreover you can choose from a series of walking trails in the surroundings, for instance a trail leading to the municipality of San Genesio, the Salto or also to Merano 2000.

Worth mentioning are also the spread hill churches as well as the cultural landscape cultivated by the farms of the village. The S. Blasius church in the centre of the village of Frassineto, however, boasts a expressive fresco dating back to the year 1621. The church was enlarged around 1500 and refurbished in Gothic style, only the steeple is left in Romanesque style.

Our tip: a family excursion, both in summer and winter, also with snow-shoes, to the Tschaufer pond or the Tschaufenhaus (1.304 m asl), offering a great view.
