Vitorchiano

Overview

The village of Vitorchiano rises in a splendid naturalistic context

Overhanging some large conical rocks, it is surrounded by a rich territory of great biodiversity, where travellers exploring the woods and meadows can meet wild and beautiful animals, and observe enchanting brightly coloured flowers. The village fascinates with its medieval aspect and it is a pleasure to stroll through its narrow alleys, external staircases, arches, small squares and stone houses. The cuisine is also a strong point of the village and among the most characteristic dishes are 'cavatello', a typical pasta made only with water and flour, and 'ciambella all'anice salata Vitorchianese'. A curiosity: few people know that the only existing Moai (monolithic sculpture of Easter Island) in Italy can be found here.
