Montassilone

Above Gais, there is the Montassilone, a village of 20 souls, offers a late-Gothic church.

Montassilone is located close to Riomolino, high above Gais and Villa Ottone, at 1,485 m asl, and can not only be reached from Gais, but also from Perca. Along this road you also cycle when doing the popular Montassilone round tour, ideal both for mountain bikers and for road racers.

Montassilone has got about two dozen inhabitants, stress and rush seem not to exist in this place. Mountain tours that can be done starting from Montassilone take you to the Geige or the Belcolle, with a stop at the Montassilone alpine pasture, which is really worthwhile. If you prefer walking down, walk to the Chela Castle in Gais.

There is by the way also a mountain jog taking place in Montassilone. In this jog the participants run from Gais to Montassilone, where the finish is located.
