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, belongs to a rare quality, which is cultivated only in the arid high mountain soils between 1200 and 1450 meters. Excellent to taste, they are the basis of traditional dishes that tell the story of this territory by writing it in the flavors and ancient gestures of the kitchen.

The Museum allows visitors to take a trip through the Park's plant diversity and is an original initiative, one of the few of its kind in Italy and Europe.

La Rocca, at the height of a very high peak (1500 m above sea level), has a regular plant with large towers with a circular plan and a male at the center. Still retains sharp walls and even a rare original crenellation.
