Moncenisio, the smallest village of Italy

of the most cured. All the houses have been restored maintaining the characteristic
of the environment. In case of snow, its roads are kept clean. Is
inserted in a nature of remarkable beauty. Moreover, its history boasts countless
events: passage of Hannibal, Charlemagne, Napoleon; of the incredible and sad Children’s Crusade of 1200, and more...
Curiosities and history:
Before World War II, the country was called Ferrera Cenisio. His maxim
the extension dates back to 700 when the pass of Moncenisio was an obligatory passage for
those who had to cross the Alps. Numerous hotels, restaurants (then called
Locande) gave hotel to travelers who sought refreshment, accommodation, and the change of
horses. The most frequent activity at that time was the work of a porter performed by the Marrons: strong men who, with the Ramasses (the sedans of that time), brought the rich lords,
that they could afford it, on the other hand. Brigandage was also a common activity.
Now in the country were reopened some restaurants and facilities to give hotel. Moncenisio, was and still is, a stage for pilgrims, who for centuries have travelled the "Via Francigena". The Chalet sul lago is listed as hotel,
ristorante along the way. Our hotel activity thus becomes an initiative to maintain historical/cultural traditions. Moncenisio, for its "strategic" location, has experienced countless conflicts already from Roman
history to reach the last two World Wars. Along the various routes all around, you can find remains of these wars and immerse yourself in its incredible history.
