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 stroll, and the railway, a monument that has taken on national importance for the great engineering work that was necessary for its construction.
