Castelluccio

Overview

The flowering on the roof of the Sibillini

At about 1,400 meters above sea level, Castelluccio di Norcia is one of the highest towns in the Umbrian-Marche Apennines. The village is located on the plateau of Piani di Castelluccio and is part of the wild Sibillini Mountains National Park. Walking along the plain, stop to observe a small forest in the shape of Italy. In front stands the shape of Mount Vettore with the Cima del Redentore, the highest in Umbria. A short distance away is Lake Pilate, of glacial origin.

The country is recognized as the home of outdoor sports for hikers, skiers, hang gliders and cyclists. In the summer, in Serravalle you can descend the Corno river by boat, canoe or kayak.

Embark on an unusual trek along the ancient mule tracks, where pack animals carry field supplies and travellers' luggage. For the little ones it is possible to take walks on the backs of docile donkeys.

But the undisputed protagonist of Castelluccio is the flowering that, between the end of May and the beginning of July, transforms the plain into a palette of colors and scents.

Finish your excursions, regain your strength with a typical meal based on Castelluccio lentils, among the most valuable in Italy, but also chickpeas, cicerchie, cured meats and a plate of pasta alla norcina.
