Monguelfo is the main place of the municipality and is located in the heart of the Val Pusteria.

Embedded in a natural landsape and with a view to the Dolomites, Monguelfo stands for relaxing holidays. The village is considered the main place of the municipality, is located at 1,087 m and has got about 1,500 inhabitants.

Those who love history might want to see Castel Welsperg, a castle complex of the 13th century, an eye-catcher in the village. It enthrones a rock spur that falls away sharply on three sides, into the gorge of the Casies river. By the way, Monguelfo is also birthplace of the artist Paul Troger. The pieces of art of this late-Baroque artist decorate the altar of the parish church.

Of course you should also do some sports on holidays. You could for example do a tour on the cycle track of the Val Pusteria, spanning along the valley from Rio di Pusteria to Lienz in East Tyrol. In winter we recommend a romantic walk in the Valle di Casies, where also 40 km of cross-country ski runs span over the valley floor in a fairytale winter landscape.
