Praforte and the Ciaurlec


There are signs of rebirth among the ruins of the abandoned village of Praforte, which can be reached by footpath or by car. While most of the stone buildings with wooden galleries are collapsing under vegetation, some are being renovated.
In the mid-1960s, the inhabitants of the village on the slopes of Monte Ciaurlec, 350 metres above sea level, were evacuated on the grounds of a looming landslide and moved to Paludea, near the town hall, in a new district called Praforte Nuovo. The real reason, however, was the transformation of the Ciaurlec into a military firing range and the risk of the houses being hit during the exercises. Now the mountain is no longer a military zone and it is possible to walk along its paths.

Archaeological Museum in Palazzo Toffol

The area in which Montereale Valcellina stands has been inhabited for at least three thousand years: the oldest evidence of human settlements dates back to the 14th century B.C., the so-called Bronze Age. Some swords that have re-emerged from the gravel of the Cellina date back to this period, perhaps of a votive nature, linked to the cult of the torrent or of a deity linked to water.
