Monzuno panorama


Monzuno Via degli Dei
The municipality of Monzuno overlooks the Setta, Savena and Sambro valleys. Its territory offers a breathtaking landscape to be discovered thanks to the many trails that cross the surroundings. Long walks around Monzuno offer the opportunity to admire typical glimpses of the Apennines, including hilly landscapes, lush forests, green meadows and breathtaking panoramic views. It is speculated that the name Monzuno derives from the Latin "Mons Junonis." Interesting is the church dedicated to San Giovanni Evangelista, already known in the 14th century, while the present building dates back to the late 19th century.
Monzuno is one of the best known sites on the Via degli Dei, a mandatory stop before approaching the border with the neighboring Tuscany. Near Monte Adone and Monte Venere (the highest point in the area at 965 meters), there is the picturesque village of Le Croci (dating back to the 16th century), whose buildings are still almost undamaged.
Not to be missed, a visit to Rioveggio and its historic sites, the village of Polverara, the Tower of Montorio and especially the lovely village of Gabbiano. It's not usual to find a Gothic-style church at an altitude of 600 meters in the Bolognese Apennines! The incredible Church of San Giacomo has features that are unfamiliar to Emilian architecture and much closer to the neo-Gothic style, as is evident from the singular French Gothic facade. The high bell tower is visible from the surrounding valleys and dominates the beautiful 14th-century village.
Monzuno's territory hosts part of the Contrafforte Pliocenico Nature Reserve, an area of great interest from a geological, faunal and environmental point of view. What makes this portion of the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines particularly striking is the great environmental variability, characterized by a series of clearly differentiated rocky, forest and grassland habitats, home of rare bird species, including the peregrine falcon.
