Scurcola Marsicana

Overview

On the slopes of Mount San Nicola rises Scurcola Marsicana, a village that welcomes the traveller with the beauty of its landscapes, its ancient rituals and above all with the genuine hospitality of its people. While a mountainous panorama of enchanting beauty stretches around the village, not to be missed are: the Orsini Castle, which recounts the medieval past; the Piani Palentini Necropolis, which instead narrates the territory's more archaic and mysterious past; the pretty and well-preserved toric centre and the hamlet of Cappelle dei Marsi. Lastly, the events that take place during the Easter period are unique, intense and evocative: the Last Supper, with which the Last Supper is commemorated, and the Calvary or Via Crucis, which includes a heartfelt procession involving the four Confraternities and the entire population.
