MONZUNO Travel Guide
Monzuno is a village of 6.414 inhabitants in the province of Bologna. The first finds date back to the Neolithic Age, but the earliest settlements probably date back to the period of Imperial Rome. In medieval times, the territory of Monzuno was on the border between Byzantines and Longobardi, and its castle was an important center of power until the end of 1300, when it was destroyed.
It is worth taking a trip to Rioveggio to admire the Elle Castle and the Tower of Montorio, partly restored and modernized, as well as the 15th-century Ca 'Marsili tower-house. Very beautiful are the villages of Agadello di Sotto and Croci, whose historic center dates back to the sixteenth century and where time seems to have stopped.
what to see and what to do
Another interesting excursion, if you move further north, is that of Monte Rosso, which allows you to discover some of the most interesting places and features of the Natural Reserve of Contrafforte Pliocenico. It starts from Livergnano, a small village characterized by picturesque houses carved directly into the rock, to then move towards Monte Rosso; the road runs along the characteristic light sandstone walls that give such a particular aspect to this part of the territory. During the excursion, if you are lucky, you can see the peregrine falcons engaged in the hunt, one of the protected species that has found inside the Reserve an ideal protected habitat.
