The area has been inhabited since prehistory (Grotta delle Gallerie), protohistory (Castellieri of Monte S. Michele and Monte Carso), the Roman age (remains of houses and an aqueduct) and the Middle Ages (ruins of the 12th-century castle of Moccò). Excursions for Val Rosandra start from Bagnoli della Rosandra, where the landscape changes dramatically: the green meadows and hill of the alluvial plain give way to the deep ravine excavated in the Eocene limestone by the rushing torrent, a 30 m high waterfall among steep Alpine slopes where the eagle owl builds its nest. The Mario Premuda refuge (80 m above sea level) and a CAI school for rock-climbing are among the attractions of the place. Overlooking the valley is the small country church of Sta. Maria in Siaris, known since the 13th century. The Valley is dominated by several lookout points from which the view is superb (on Monte Stena there are the lookout and church of S. Lorenzo, 1665).
