Discovering Molise, among the sea, mountains and breath-taking views
Mountains, hills, lakes, rivers and the sea: the province of Campobasso has everything any tourist could want in a holiday. Its rich history has left lasting traces, including the protohistoric village of Campomarino, a stone’s throw from the sea, which bears witness to settlements from the Bronze Age to the 7th century BC, and the Lombard necropolis of Campochiaro, which takes visitors back in time to the early Middle Ages.
The spectacular panoramic views offered by the city of Campobasso are complemented by renowned monuments, like the Castle of Monforte, the Cathedral of the Holy Trinity and the Church of Sant’Antonio Abate, with its late-Renaissance façade.
Be sure to visit the Castle of Civitacampomarano, an imposing 15th century military fortress, and the WWF Oasis of Guardiaregia Campochiaro, the second largest natural oasis in Italy. Its 3,000 hectares boast natural gems, including the canyon of the Quirino stream and the Pozzo della Neve and Cul di Bove caves.
