Borgata Museo

Is a tiny village sheltered beneath enormous projecting rocks, making it a perfectly preserved autonomous and functional agricultural microcosm. It was used as a shelter for livestock, as a store for farm implements, a bread baking oven and wash house. The inspiring principle behind it all being that of saving space.

The site has been open to the public since 2005, and is a true open-top museum of agricultural life, that is truly unique and often compared to the Pueblo di Mesa Verde in Colorado.

Access is on foot only and takes you through wonderful countryside with centuries-old chestnut trees that, like old women, silently observe the paved bridle paths, the painstaking work of the ancient inhabitants of Mombracco.
