Roccamorice – Pescara Province
Roccamorice rises on a rocky crest between the dried river beds of Larino and Lannella. It is at an altitude of 520 metres and is within the National Park of Maiella, renowned for its luxuriant flora and fauna. The town is also famous for the nearby Hermitage of Santo Spirito a Maiella, which is certainly worth the trip to see the impressive way the church and hermitage are carved into the rock face. The monastery is believed to date back over a thousand years.
Dotted amongst the local landscape are the many dry-stone huts or ‘Tholos’ which were mainly built in the 18th and 19th centuries to shelter shepherds and lambs.
There are many outdoor activities to enjoy, including hiking, biking, skiing and rock climbing. All are close by.
The town has a medieval setting, with its narrow streets, and the buildings are constructed from the typical white stone of the Maiella. There are a few stores in the town but on Wednesday morning you can catch a local bus to Scafa to visit the wonderful outdoor market selling local delicacies and products of the area. The town has a choice of good restaurants.
