Monticello – Tower

On the vineyard-covered and forested hill of La Motta, to the south of the village of Monticello, can be found the remains of the walls of a tower. No documentary evidence exists, however: the tower possibly formed part of a castle court of a local nobleman or perhaps it served to provide surveillance and defense of the borders of the Moesa Region jurisdiction. On the southern foot of the hill exists to this day an inhabited building which incorporates a type of tower.
