There is a time of day when the sun illuminates the picturesque village, reflecting on the blue waters of the lake of the same name, and perhaps it is there that Barrea expresses all its magic, its being a mountain village, one with the nature that surrounds it. Perched on a rocky spur, it is part of the Abruzzo, Lazio and Molise National Park, and the landscape that surrounds it is so beautiful that it looks like a postcard: mountain peaks, beech forests, clear streams, all this makes Barrea an ideal destination for hiking enthusiasts. From here, trails lead to Lake Vivo, Lake Pantaniello, Lake Barrea and the Resuni refuge. The historic heart of the village, however, is the Castle, built between the 11th and 12th centuries, whose presence recounts the ancient history of the area.
