Sella

Sella, a small but mighty village at 450 m a.s.l., extends on a sunny plateau only a stone’s throw from Lake Caldaro.

In the north of Termeno village there is the small village of Sella (Söll, in German), extending on a sun-spoilt plateau at an altitude ranging from 400 to 750 m a.s.l. Such as another locality belonging to Termeno, Ronchi, once was part of the municipal area of Cortaccia. Since 1914 it has been one of the component localities of Termeno. The area, however, has been settled since ancient times - already the Romans cultivated vines here.

Sella, beautifully surrounded by vineyards, watches over the South Tyrolean Wine Road which continues to Cortaccia, Magrè and Cortina, and - towards north - to Caldaro and Appiano. Two buildings are particularly interesting and catch the eye: the crenellated property of Castel Rechtenthal with its homonymous Academy, and the St. Maurice Church in Sella enthroning a small hill. It dates back to the time of the Crusaders and houses panels showing Adam and Eve.

The locality offers also some pleasant hiking paths, perfectly suited to discover the Wine Road on foot. One of them leads in two hours from Termeno to Cortaccia, more precisely through the mixed forests between Sella and Corona, whereas a panorama path takes you in 1.5 hours from Sella to the village centre of Termeno. Those, who would like to extend the hike, may proceed along the Termeno Nature Experience Trail to the biotope at the southern shores of Lake Caldaro.
