Missiano is a particularly idyllic village located between San Paolo and Riva di Sotto

Missiano (388 m a.s.l.) is located in the heart of meadows and forests and is known above all for one particular hiking tour, which is the Walk of the Three Castles (Drei Burgen-Wanderung). This trail leads to three different castles, which are Castel Corba, Castel d’Appiano and Castel Boymont. Another popular tour in this area leads to the top of the Monte Macaion.

Already in the early 13th century, a settlement named Missianum was mentioned. Above all the special and particularly quiet location might have pleased the people at that time (like today). From here you can admire the Val d’Adige valley up to the Sciliar. The parish church of Missiano on the little village square is a small church located on a hill that is covered by vineyards, dedicated to S. Apollonia and as second patron saint to S. Zeno. It was first mentioned in the 15th century and repeatedly refined in the course of time. The main altar was constructed in the Baroque style, the new folk altar was designed by Markus Gasser from Bressanone in 2006, while the side altars derive from a church in Innsbruck.

Missiano can undoubtedly be considered one of the jewels of Appiano.
