Goriano Sicoli
Goriano Sicoli

Overlooking the Subequana Valley and surrounded by woods and valleys, Goriali Sicoli stands on a hill from which the eye is lost to the horizon and caresses the green of the landscape. Coming from afar, the first thing you notice is the imposing bell tower, once a sentinel to defend the territory: the bell tower, in fact, rises, together with the lovely parish church, on what was once the ancient castle. The village and its houses accompany the slope and were protected by the massive walls, still visible. To see, outside the center, "I Cerri", a huge public forest where you can relax and st

Lecce nei Marsi
Lecce nei Marsi

Lecce dei Marsi, 745 meters above sea level and 76.5 km from L'Aquila, is the birthplace of Andrea Delitio, whose artistic skills are expressed in the Duomo of Atri. According to some scholars, the origin of the village dates back to the tenth century BC, when the place was inhabited by the so-called Safino-Italic Civilization. The ruins found in the excavations of the Tavana torrent seem to confirm the presence of an inhabited nucleus that dates back to Roman times and defined "Vicus Anninus", and from the discovery in 1877 of some tombs that had engraved in many parts on the stone the ins

Monteferrante
Monteferrante

It is a tiny jewel, Monteferrante, a tiny village that stands perched on a natural panoramic terrace from which, looking out and letting your gaze run, you can admire the green mountains, streams, meadows, ranging from the lake of Bomba up to the Majella. An ideal destination for those seeking an intimate and relaxing contact with nature, Monteferrante is also a jewel of culture, art and history. In fact, the ancient center has maintained its medieval appearance, among small streets, narrow and steep alleys, and glimpses of rare beauty. But it will be the Castle of Di Sangro that captures t

Cerchio
Cerchio

Small village of Abruzzo in the Marsica, Cerchio has ancient roots and its history is linked to a legend. It is said that the first houses were built around a theater built by the Romans to celebrate the coronation of Emperor Claudius after he had dried up the lake of Fucino in 51 AD. Around the village, the landscape stretches green until it rises in the reliefs that accompany the horizon line. Do not miss the Civic Museum, which preserves the testimonies of local history: here are exhibited the finds of the peasant civilization and of the crafts, of the sacred and ethnographic art, in a m

Collarmele
Collarmele

Among the splendid Apennine valleys of Abruzzo and surrounded by imposing and wild mountains, we find Collarmele, a small village whose origins are surrounded by mystery and legends. What we know is that the village is set like a precious stone in a landscape that takes your breath away, at the gates of the Sirente Velino Regional Park, halfway between the Majella Park, the Monte Salviano Nature Reserve and the National Park of Abruzzo, Lazio and Molise. Among woods, hills and streams, its territory is a paradise for those who love to explore nature and be enveloped by its regenerating sile

Collelongo
Collelongo

Collelongo, at 915 meters above sea level and at Km 86 from L'Aquila, is a large village on the slopes of Mount Malpasso in Vallelonga, the ancient Transaquana Valley. In this valley, for centuries, a wild and at times inaccessible nature has guarded the secrets of the civilizations that have populated it: from prehistoric settlements to the Italic ones, from the remains of the Roman period to those of the Middle Ages, unfortunately partly destroyed by the violent earthquake that in 1915 destroyed the Marsica. Today Collelongo is an important tourist destination both for its archaeological

Castel di Ieri
Castel di Ieri

Inside the Sirente Regional Nature Park, we meet the village of Castel di Ieri, perched on a hill as if to remember when, in past centuries, the tower that dominates the village controlled the whole territory. It is precisely the Tower, in fact, the symbol of the history of Castel di Ieri: square, almost 20 meters high, is the ancient stronghold built at the behest of the Counts of Celano. Around the Tower there is the historic center, one of the best preserved of its province that, between narrow streets, historical buildings and small details of a distant time, brings us back over the cen

Castelvecchio Calvisio
Castelvecchio Calvisio

Castelvecchio Calvisio can be recognized from above thanks to its very particular shape. This country, in fact, which stands on the top of a hill at over 1000 meters above sea level, has a beautiful elliptical shape that seems to enclose the fortified village, making it special, unique. At the center of this fortified heart, narrow streets covered by vaults and arches, houses that develop on several levels reached thanks to the ancient stone stairs called "barbacani" and glimpses that have the taste of the Middle Ages, make its unique and very suggestive atmosphere. If you add to this the w

Castelvecchio Subequo
Castelvecchio Subequo

Castelvecchio Subequo stands on a rock spur of Mount Putano, straddling the Marsicano, Peligno and Aquilano areas, a small but very rich artistic, historical and cultural village. Walking through the village and its surroundings, in fact, it is easy to come across buildings of architectural and cultural value, and in important archaeological sites: Castelvecchio, for example, preserves the archaeological heritage of the ancient Superaequum, one of the three most important cities of the Peligni. History, therefore, but also hospitality and know-how: here the traveler is welcome and will be r

Carsoli
Carsoli

The territory of Carsoli is cut in two by the Turano river and surrounded by a landscape full of beauty, almost wild. The oldest part of the village is located in a strategic position, on the hill that dominates the whole area, where stood the Orsini Castle, whose remains are still visible. This fortress was built around 1000 by the Counts of the Marsi to protect the territory and its remains can still tell those stories, including fights, strategies and battles to defend the village and its people. Around, finally, woods and paths to rediscover the contact with nature: in particular, to se
