Montefranco is a little mountain village and an ideal starting point for tours in every season.

Montefranco, Freiberg in German, is a little mountain village belonging to Castelbello-Ciardes, rising at 1,081 m asl, at the foot of the homonymous spur in the mountain ridge that separates the Val Venosta from the Val d’Ultimo. Montefranco is an ideal starting point for those who love mountaineering and ski touring, mainly starting from the parking space “Alte Säge” in the valley of the Schlums river.

Ideal is this terrain for those who love to discover an unspoilt area, located between the Alpe di Tarres, the lakes and alpine pasture Malga di Covolo, the lake and pasture Zirmtal, the Malga Marzoner and the summit of the Gran Ladro (2,723 m), from where you can enjoy a breathtaking panoramic view.
