The neat centre of Salonetto is dominated by its St. Valentine Church, a little baroque village church dating back to 1769

It is located a little below the village of Salonetto (Schlaneid), the mountain station of the Meltina Cable Car: In just four minutes it takes you from Vilpiano in the Adige Valley to the high plateau of the Monzoccolo or vice versa, including panoramic views on the valley, the Oltradige area and the villages of the municipality of Meltina. Salonetto itself extends in the midst of meadows and forests at an altitude of considerably more than 1,000 metres a.s.l.

In the middle of the centre stands the Church of St. Valentine, a simple baroque building that replaced the previously existing church in the Valtes Forest just outside of Salonetto. Its remains were uncovered around 1900 and can be visited again today. Another little church is a popular panoramic site: St. Ulrich in Gschleier between Salonetto and Meltina invites you to take a seat on its wooden bench and breathe deeply amidst the South Tyrolean mountains.

Hikers and families, mountain bikers and Nordic walkers appreciate the remote village because of its good connections. The paths start on the doorstep and mainly take you to the surrounding alpine pastures. An excursion leads to the Leadner Hut and the Möltner Kaser in the Sarentino Alps, a hut with mountain pasture farming and South Tyrolean specialities. Alternatively, you may reach it by mountain bike. Gschnofer Stall and Tschaufenhaus are also names of managed huts that are often also open in winter, when the surroundings are ideal for snowshoe tours.
