Prignano spreads around the beautiful seventeenth century bell tower dedicated to St Michael and enjoys a wonderful view over the hills and the valley of the river Rossenna. Walking through the village, you come across the Casa Pellesi, a typical example of a house – tower originally dating to the 16th century; the Casa Berti, a seventeenth century palace with massive tower and loggia; and the eighteenth century Church of San Lorenzo with its recent, distinctive bell tower. From the centre of the village and its medieval castle, there are three mountain bike trails that lead to the rural cluster of houses “Quattro Grassoni”, built around an internal courtyard; to Mount Lauro, immersed in a fir wood; and the hamlet “Borgo delle Are” with remains of a medieval tower. Each year, in the month of June, the Festival of Mountain Gastronomy takes place in the centre of the village, with stands, entertainment and typical mountain dishes. Sporting activities are well organised at the football grounds and sports hall: the Modena football school for children has been organised here for several years.
