Santo Stefano di Sessanio

Overview

When we arrive in Santo Stefano di Sessanio, we feel transported to a magical, timeless place: the silence, the high altitude, the enchanted landscape, the beauty of the historic centre, all this welcomes and lulls us. Situated in the heart of the Gran Sasso and Monti della Laga National Park, its centre is built entirely of white limestone, made only a little more opaque by the passing of the centuries, and the tile roofs create a harmonious vision for those who look down on the town from above. But what most represents Santo Stefano is its lentils: a very high quality product, they belong to a rare quality that is only cultivated in the dry soils of the high mountains between 1,200 and 1,450 metres. Excellent to taste, they are the basis of traditional dishes that tell the story of this territory by writing it in the flavours and ancient gestures of the kitchen.
