Castel del Monte

Included in the territory of the Gran Sasso and Monti della Laga National Park, Castel del Monte is a place that has always enchanted with the beauty and majesty of the landscape that surrounds it, making it a popular destination for those looking for the most authentic and uncontaminated nature. Borgo with its soul and medieval town planning, which is still told above all in the typical tower-houses, the town has always been a symbol of transhumance. The production of the famous local Canestrato is linked to this ancient practice. Its crust brings back the imprints of the basket in which it is matured, its flavor is intense and reminds the scents of the meadows, to leave space, at the end, to a slight sweetness. Canestrato has the flavor of an ancient history, tasting it means taking part and protecting its memory.
