ROCCACASALE - L’AQUILA PROVINCE
This charming mountain village is built on the slopes of the Monte della Rocca at 450 metres above sea level. It is in the centre of the Abruzzese Apennines overlooking the Peligna Valley and close to the larger towns of Sulmona and Pratola Peligna.
Roccacasale has a population of 683 and its origin dates to the ancient settlement of Casali, known to have existed prior to 925 AD. Following the construction of the castle, the residential centre developed into a typical medieval, walled village. Exploring the roads that radiate from the castle, linked by narrow passageways between the fascinatingly old buildings, allow walkers to appreciate times past.
Tradition maintains that the ruins of Roccacasale’s towering castle are inhabited by fairies, who work evil spells on the unwary.
The typical products of the area include wine, mushrooms, olives, potatoes, beans, tomatoes and other minor crops. Pecorino cheese production is also excellent.
Roccacasale has a few shops, bars and restaurants whist the larger town of Sulmona, with all facilities, is only 12 minutes away, by car. Pratola Peligna can be reached in 5 minutes and has a food and flower market, every Friday. Both towns can be reached by bus.
