MALNISIO (Montereale Valcellina)

Situated in the final part of the Pordenonese Padana plain, in between the Cellina river, the Fara and the Spia mountains, although its small dimensions, Montreale Valcellina bears old origins. Malnisio is an hamlet that belongs to Montreale, in the province of Pordenone. In Malnisio findings dating back to the Bronze Age and to the first early Iron Age were found. They concretize the fact that the human settlement has been existing since the XIV century BC. Furthermore, several findings dating back to the Imperial and late-Roman Age put under the spotlight the entire area.
