Rivamonte Agordino - From Via Roma - Facing south, Italy
Rivamonte Agordino is a charming small village located in the Agordo valley, in the Italian region of Belluno, just south of the famous Dolomites. The village is home to many beautiful churches, the main one being the Church of the Assumption - an impressive 16th century church that features quite a few works of art, including paintings by local artists. The Church of Sant’Antonio dates from the same century, and has some interesting frescoes in its interior. Rivamonte Agordino is located surrounded by a beautiful rural landscape, with sprawling pastures, small creeks, fields, and forests full of wildlife. Nature lovers and hikers often visit the area to explore its hills and broad valleys. The Castel di Roncade is also a lovely sight - it is a 13th century castle located just 500 meters away. From the region’s highest point, Monte Rinaldo, a full view of the valley can be admired, while down in the streets the traditional architecture graces the terraces, gardens and balconies of the houses. Every spring and autumn the village is full of life as the folk festival takes place, with plenty of music, dancing and food.
