  • We decided with his wife Luciana to spend a Sunday special by visiting one of the most beautiful villages in Italy present in the peligna Valley, and so early in the morning we went to the land of PACENTRO caldora. Walk from the square up and down streets and alleys, streets and houses were renovated with much taste, flowers on all Windows, grandparents on the doors to chat, in short, a typical village in the Central abruzzo region, in friendly and sociable. We brush up of things to visit:-Giacomo Caldora Castle, built in the 11th century and later to defense of the invasions by the Saracens who came downtown abruzzo, under Giacomo Caldora Pacentro crossed a shining period and flourishing, too bad that sided with the Aragonese, who were defeated by the Angevins, and they seized all assets of g. Caldora. The g. Caldora recruited the commoners for the army of mercenaries, letting them run barefoot on the mountain, leaving the sacred history of the Gypsy race which is held on the first Sunday of September each year, the young and the young at heart will be challenged by climbing the Hill Ardinghi before easing up to the Church of Santa Maria Maggiore. The medieval castle is made up of three square towers of century XIV to quadrangle surrounded by a moat and with three towers in the outer wall, all for defense against attackers, it is certain that the location is beautiful and scenic. Before being acquired by the fine arts the castle had as last owner Maffeo Barberini who bought it from the Kingdom of Naples in 1664, while formerly the fief and Castle were property of the column. -We went to visit the Church of Santa Maria Maggiore: aisles and octagonal pillars with two beautiful altars of 1500/1600, with the belfry adorned by large mullioned Windows. -The 16th-century Franciscan convent, admire the Baroque source located in the main square. Half an hour's walk (by car) you get to passo San Leonardo, small ski resort to take the kids to familiarize yourself with the snow, or where to start to make beautiful excursions in the mountains (Morrone and Maiella). Pacentro was the beginning of the 20th century a strong emigration and in 1919, emigrated also grandparents of Madonna in the US, the famous international singer coming to Italy for four times has never deigned to visit your beautiful country of origin, has lost a unique spectacle. And ultimately from the square with my wife Luciana you were seated at the restaurant De Li Caldora, something from science fiction, no critical and/or gourmet may describe the authenticity of what you can enjoy typical local products, all of the Abruzzo mountains: ricotta, pluck, lamb and what about taste of ricotta and wild boar prosciutto, gnocchi "sagnette , leg of lamb marinated and grilled goat ricotta ravioli with past, strips of fried lamb, basically everything that mountainous abruzzo you can ask and find. We left satisfied and satiated Parisa Caldora and chef of Italy among the most beautiful of abruzzo. You have nothing to lose, we can also make comparisons with the beautiful Venzone del F.V.G., now a national monument, don't forget to visit that beautiful country called medieval Pacentro perched on the mountain which overlooks the peligna Valley. .
