Full description
Today a destination for outings and places particularly loved by cinema and advertising screenwriters, Monte Gelato is one of the most significant and evocative historical sites of the Treja Valley. The site preserves traces of the many settlements that occurred here over time: from the remains of a Roman villa of the first century BC to the agricultural settlement of the 8th Century AD to the watermill built in the 19th Century.

La Mola, or mill, was built by the Del Drago family. It is a complex of buildings located between the two branches of the Treja river. It remained active until after the war and then was abandoned, it was only recovered in very recent times and houses an information point about the Park which illustrates some aspects of the structure of the surrounding area. The suggestion of the places, the numerous waterfalls, the shady gorges, make it a classic destination for trips and outings.

The walk begins with a visit to the "Mola di Monte Gelato", and then descends towards the waterfalls, on the right bank of the Treja. You can decide to cross a small tributary on the rocks and take a path that runs along the river or simply relax in the shade of poplars and elms. To make this walk even more enjoyable you will be accompanied along the banks of the river, in the middle of the waterfalls and finally, you will rest in the equipped area where you will enjoy your picnic under the shade of the trees.
