Small village in Abruzzo surrounded by nature
A small municipality in the province of Pescara in Abruzzo, Farindola is a pretty village with ancient origins. Although traces of habitation date to the Neolithic period, this town was actually founded in the 11th century by the Normans, and now an important tourist destination in Abruzzo.
The city's most important monument is undoubtedly the parish church of San Nicola di Bari. Erected in 1080, it has undergone significant renovations since the 1920s, altering its exterior and interior. The real highlight of this building is the view of the surrounding countryside, visible from the square in front of the church.
From Farindola, it is possible to reach enchanting sights, such as the Pietralunga Lake, the Camoscio d’Abruzzo Wildlife Area and the famous Vitello d’Oro Waterfall, evocative natural spectacles immersed in uncontaminated areas. Also worth mentioning is the proximity to the well-known villages of Castel del Monte and Rocca Calascio, tourist destinations with a distinctive medieval style.
