Set on a rocky spur of the Majella, if we look at Pretoro from a distance we seem to see a village that is the continuation of the rock itself. Once reached, we enter the heart of the town and we find ourselves breathing the ancient atmosphere of this town built around 1600 after the destruction of the Castle of Pretoro, perched on the end of the rock and called "Castrum Pretorii de Theti". Here, between very narrow streets and intertwined with each other like a precious embroidery, we wander until we find ourselves before the majestic panorama that surrounds the village. Mountains and woods, also narrated in the "Centro San Domenico for the dissemination of cultural and natural aspects on the wolf, the snakes and the history of Pretoro". Finally, wood craftsmanship is characteristic, in particular for the production of spindles to work wool.
