Artistic beauties, fields of buckwheat and vineyards
The slope on the Rhaetian side of Teglio, standing in the bright midday sun, stretches from the valley bottom of San Giacomo, Valgella and Tresenda up to the plateau where the municipality stands. The landscape is characterised by vineyards interspersed between heather shrubland, rocky banks with small valgelli (water courses) cutting through. The areas of terracing, the small villages and hamlets, the churches and bell towers standing out beneath the protective wing of the “de li Beli Miri” tower, modulate the landscape in various ways, revealing the presence and hand of man. Archaeological finds dating back to 5,000/6,000 years ago, in fact, offer evidence of permanent settlements already in the Prehistoric Age. A harmonious coexistence that has made this stretch of the Adda Valley one of the most charming in the Valtellina.
