Monteleone Castle (Lebenberg in German) is a splendid castle amidst colourful vineyards high above the municipality of Cermes. It is deemed to be the landmark of the village. Doing a hike along the Marlengo Waalweg path you have a fantastic view on the castle.
Built in the 13th century by the Lords of Marlengo (Marling), Monteleone Castle is one of the most beautiful and biggest fully furnished castles in private hands in South Tyrol. 1426 the castle passed from the Lords of Marlengo to the Lords von Fuchs. They owned it up to the 19th century. Nowadays the castle belongs to the van Rossem family and is open to the public.
Lovers of culture and architecture can look forward for instance to the three-floors high St. Stephan chapel of the 14th century, picturesque inner courtyards, a French flower garden and a Venetian hall of mirrors, dating back to the rococo era. Worth seeing are also the hall of knights and the hall of arms. Moreover some valuable Gothic frescoes have been rediscovered. Monteleone Castle can be discovered on foot from the village centre of Cermes and is accessible by car along the Monte Leone Road.
