Missiano is located at 388 m asl, at the foot of the Monte Macaion and is above all famous for the walk that takes you to the three castles of the village, called “Dreiburgenwanderung” (Three Castles Walk). The small but mighty village provides tranquillity and makes you forget everyday life. The 240 people living in this place live true to their balance.
In the far 1237, a settlement called Missianum appeared for the first time in documents. Already in this period people appreciated the great location, which by the way makes you enjoy a great panoramic view on the Val d’Adige and the Sciliar.
The ultimate highlight is, however, the walk of the three castles. During this walk you can experience several adventures, taking you over stairs and steep trails. The Burgschenke castle tavern at Castel d’Appiano as well as Castel Boymont are by places that provide relaxation in historical ambience. Castel Corba is considered the starting point and also provides accommodation.
The parish church is dedicated to S. Apollonia and San Zeno. It is located on a hill and was mentioned for the first time in the 15th century. In the course of time it has repeatedly been renovated and renewed. The main altar is preserved in Baroque style, the new altar was created in 2006 by the Markus Gasser, an artist of Bressanone. The side altars come from the Tyrolean capital of Innsbruck.
