The Medieval Village of Novale

It consists of a group of homes located above the Carzano community shaped like a large balcony and which is connected to the village by a path. Hidden by olive and chestnut trees and a coppiced wood, it is composed of picturesque houses made of square blocks of medolo stone, portals with round arches, small vaults on ground floor, and wooden balconies under sloping roofs looking onto a tiny old square.

There is also a stately residence, the summer home of Bishop Marco Morosini (1645-1654). Over time, the village has undergone many changes, today only the medieval structure, the arches and the balconies remain.
