Included in the territory of the Gran Sasso and Monti della Laga National Park, Castel del Monte is a place that has always enchanted with the beauty and majesty of the landscape that surrounds it, making it a popular destination for those in search of the most authentic and unspoiled nature.
A village with a medieval soul and urban planning, which is still told above all in the typical tower-houses, the village has always been a symbol of transhumance.
The production of the famous local Canestrato cheese is linked to this ancient practice. Its rind shows the imprints of the basket in which it is ripened, its flavour is intense and reminiscent of the scents of meadows, leaving room at the end for a slight sweetness. Canestrato has the flavour of an ancient history, tasting it means taking part in it and preserving its memory.
