Carsoli (AQ) Abruzzo

The area around Carsoli is divided in two by the Turano river and surrounded by beautiful, almost wild countryside. The oldest part of the town is strategically positioned on the hills that overlook the whole region, where Castello Orsini once stood: the ruins can still be seen today. The fortress was built in around the year 1000 by the Counts of Marsi to protect their land, and its ruins evoke the story well, telling of the struggles, strategies and battles to defend the town and its people. Surrounding the town are woods and walks that will put visitors back in touch with nature: particularly worth visiting is the Caves of Pietrasecca Nature Reserve, which offers fine walks – some guided – to discover the caves, sites of geological interest and enchanting footpaths.
