In Upper Molise, amidst cyclopean boulders of stone (the 'Morge'), at the foot of Mount Caraceno lies Pietrabbondante, a village that has been able to preserve the traces of its most ancient history, giving life to a true place of the soul, with an original narrative and a cultural heritage of immense value. In Pietrabbondante, in fact, there are still the remains of the Samnite fortifications on Mount Caraceno and, immediately downstream, a vast archaeological area rich in artefacts, buildings and remains. In this place, the Samnites built a cultural complex consisting of an amphitheatre (the only one of its kind in Italy), a temple and two buildings on either side of it. Visiting this place means going back in time many centuries, breathing in ancient atmospheres that miraculously have not been lost. A curiosity: the historical centre, of medieval layout, was built precisely with the stones and artefacts from the archaeological site.
