In idyllic position, hidden in the forest, there is the little village of Monticolo, which belongs to the municipality of Appiano

The Monticolo lakes, the larger and the smaller one, are particularly popular destinations, not only in summer months. Outlying from the larger centres of the market town of Appiano and nestling between the forests and meadows of the protected area, there is the small but mighty village of Monticolo at 494 m asl.

The centre is represented by the parish church dedicated to the three Magi. Constructed in the 15th century, so to speak in the late-Gothic period, the steeple was adorned by a low pyramid roof in 1518 only. Inside there is not only a ribbed vault, but also a Baroque altar as well as various elements of the Baroque period that are worthwhile.

Monticolo is by the way the most important recreation area of Appiano, above all due to the two lakes. Pleasant temperatures in the Monticolo forest and a jump into the cool waters of the lake make Monticolo so special. Also the start and end of the walk to the Valle della Primavera is located right here. Thanks to the beneficial climatic conditions, the first heralds of spring flourish very early in this valley.
