Canterano is a town overlooking the Aniene valley with ancient origins - first Etruscan then Roman - which can still be seen in what remains of the town’s walls and the Roman headstones. Given its strategic position, it has been at the center of historical episodes of key importance, which have, over the centuries, shaped its identity and structure. It is a place of great faith and spirituality, as is clear from the many churches that can still be visited to this day. Last but not least, not to be missed is the local cuisine: try the “doni dei boschi (lit. ‘gifts of the forest’) such as mushrooms and truffles, as well as “fregnacce”, wide and thick handmade fettuccine, and “pizza sorda”, which is made with water and flour and cooked in a wood-fired oven.
