Floronzo

Floronzo is located at the foot of a little hill and is a lovely village, located only a stone’s throw from the main village.

Floronzo is located at 800 m asl and has got some 190 inhabitants. This small but mighty locality stretches on the left Rienza riverside, close to the confluence of the Gadera and Rienza rivers.

In 1636 Floronzo was seriously affected by the pest, for this reason its inhabitants took oath that they would build a church when they had overcome this plague. This is how the Baroque church was constructed, which is dated 1680, while the steeple dates back to 1720. The Klosterwald forest, woods that are in possession of the opposite monastery, covers the Pflaurenzer Köpfl hill. A lovely walking trail takes across this forest, which is ideal for promenading. Along this trail you also come across a little chapel, that was constructed in remembrance of the death of the years 1809 and 1813.

On foot you can also reach the main village of the municipality of San Lorenzo di Sebato, as well as the beautiful pilgrimage site of Sares.
