Santo Stefano di Sessanio
Santo Stefano di Sessanio

When we arrive at Santo Stefano di Sessanio, we feel transported to a magical, timeless place: the silence, the high altitude, the enchanted landscape, the beauty of the historic center, all this welcomes us and cradles us. Located in the heart of the Gran Sasso and Monti della Laga National Park, its center is entirely built in white limestone, made only a little more opaque by the passing of the centuries, and the roofs in coppi create a harmonious vision for those who look at the town from above. But what most represents Santo Stefano is his lentil: product of the highest quality, belong

Palena
Palena

In the upper Aventino valley, almost totally immersed in the Majella National Park, between Palaces and green woods rises Palena. Here, as soon as you arrive, you can breathe an atmosphere of well-being and relaxation. The luxuriant nature, the clean air, the ancient tranquility of the inhabitants all contribute to making the village a place of peace and beauty. The Aventino river also crosses the town, creating beautiful waterfalls and small pools of water, in a play of lights and reflections that enchants. In this almost magical setting, we meet the elements of the village that tell its p

Ovindoli
Ovindoli

Important center of the Sirente-Velino Park located at 1375 on the sea, at 39 Km from L'Aquila, is the ancient primitive Obinolum settlement of the Marsi, in a dominant position, at the southern limit of the Rocche plateau, derived from defensive needs for the populations of the valley that were centralized to protect themselves from the raids of the barbarians. The stronghold was destroyed during the social war that saw the Italic populations unite against Rome in 90 BC and was later rebuilt by the Lombards. In 1223 Tommaso, Count of Celano, took refuge there during his rebellion against F

Pescasseroli
Pescasseroli

The name seems to derive from Pesculum Seroli. The entry Pesco (or Pesculum, Pesclum, Peschio) derives from the late Latin Pensulu, "protruding rock, at the peak, suitable for the construction of houses". The foundation is attributed to populations in the valley of the current Sulmona, which, detached from the original stock, settled on the hill called "Castel Mancino". The land of Pescasseroli belonged to the Counts of Celano then to the Di Sangro and the D'Aquino and, therefore, to the Marquises of Vasto. It was also a fief of Vittoria Colonna and Maria of Aragon. Pescasseroli lived the g

Lettopalena
Lettopalena

Lettopalena is a small village of medieval origin, which rises in a naturalistically particular context: it develops, in fact, on large limestone blocks that originated from a landslide that occurred 5000 years ago and these "geological wounds" are still today studied all over the world. The town rose around the Benedictine abbey of Santa Maria di Monteplanizio and even today around the town you can see the majestic remains of the Cyclopean walls. Do not miss the remains of the former Church of San Nicola di Bari to let yourself be transported in a distant and mysterious past: rebuilt after

Gessopalena
Gessopalena

Gessopalena rises to 654 meters above sea level on the eastern side of the Maiella: once perched on the rocky spur that dominates the Aventino valley, now lying on the ridge along which the via Peligna winds. Its name derives from the Latin gypsum, due to the presence in the territory of crystalline rocks from which the gypsum is obtained. Archaeological finds discovered in the countryside testify to pre-Roman and Roman settlements. In the early Middle Ages the population of Gessana lived scattered in the "villas" of the ancient Roman colonization; only around the year 1000,

Pizzoferrato
Pizzoferrato

Pizzoferrato was established in the municipality in 1752. Perched at 1251 meters, it stands close to a rocky cliff, which dominates the Sangro river valley from the left. It is located on the border between the province of Chieti and the province of L'Aquila. Its territory covers 30.85 square kilometers in an area rich in scrub and bare pastures. The landscape of Pizzoferrato has the characteristics of a mountain center: reserve of oxygen and serenity, it is an environment where flora and fauna are perfectly intact. In fact, many species of mammals and birds still live in the woods. Importa

Pietracamela
Pietracamela

Among the highest municipalities in the province of Teramo, Pietracamela is the only one to have the entire territory included in the Gran Sasso Park - Monti della Laga. It rises to 1005 m of altitude at the foot of the Corno Piccolo of the Gran Sasso d'Italia. Most likely the first inhabitants of the place were from Brindisi or Puglia, in general shepherds or wool carders. From 1526 the historical events of the town were linked to those of the Sicilian Valley (Kingdom of Naples). Its original name is surely Petra deriving from the fact that the houses were built on huge boulders brought do

Pescocostanzo
Pescocostanzo

Pescocostanzo, the cultural seat of the Majella National Park, is an ancient village. It almost surprises how such a small town can encompass many wonders of history, art and culture, and yet it is just like that: starting from the beautiful landscape in which it is immersed, you get to the heart of the village and you are enchanted by the details of the city and the architecture, elegant and well preserved. The heart of the historic center is the Basilica of Santa Maria del Colle, one of the most interesting churches in the entire region thanks to the elements of great artistic value that

Rivisondoli

Rivisondoli, in the Region of the Altipiani Maggiore of Abruzzo, faces east in a dominant position on the Prato plateau at an average altitude of 1,365 meters above sea level, between Roccaraso and Pescocostanzo. A natural environment of great beauty and a healthy climate: ideal destination for a summer holiday in the mountain. In the center of the town stands the parish church of San Nicola di Bari, built in 1912 on a previous place of worship, enriched by beautiful polychrome stained glass windows by Haynal (1991). Inside there are two seventeenth-century works: an altar in marble tarsia
