Montalto: The medieval borgo of Montalto sits majestically high above the Argentina Valley. As though enthroned in an eagle’s nest, it seems as if it is looking down mockingly upon those below it. With its maze of alleyways, winding stairwells, and hidden piazzas, Montalto is the quintessential medieval village. The incredible view looking down over the Argentina River flowing far below in the valley and out toward the surrounding evergreen mountains is a fitting reward for anyone who makes it up to the town.
