Predonico is a village that is reserved to those who seek relaxation and calm. This village can be reached from Appiano Monte, by car and of course also on foot. Hiking, this activity is not far to seek in this village, as there are plenty of opportunities. Also mountain bikers feel like in paradise. Above all in the period of the traditional Törggelen, many people visit this village “up there on the mountain”. Some taverns are specialised Törggele restaurants, in addition they are located in wonderful surroundings.
The church of Predonico is dedicated to S. Vigilius and has its own cemetery. It was constructed in 1799 by Hieronymus Vintschger, who came from a small noble family of Appiano. Probably there was a church already in the 6th century, as remnants of murals point at this conclusion. In 1992 the church was restored, the cemetery was adapted to the present standards.
In Predonico also hill-forts were detected, that confirm the early settlement of this area. And if you know this area you can perfectly understand the choice of these people…
