Opi

Opi is a small perched village, nestled in the heart of the national park of Abruzzo, Lazio and Molise.

Surrounded by a mountain landscape of great charm, it has two vantage points from which the eye sweeps over the expanses of the Valle del Sangro: the Belvedere La Foce, located at the top of the village, and the Belvedere in Piazza dei Caduti.

Territory inhabited since the earliest times, as evidenced by the archaeological findings in the "Graziani cave", has a particular history: it was in fact the Benedictine monks, at the beginning of the eleventh century, to stop a depopulation process that was affecting the area , and it was chosen as a site the rocky spur that today houses the village because it is easily defensible.

Heart of ancient history, Opi, but also of nature: from here many paths depart, to go to the discovery of the territory and breathe the essence of it.
