The sulphurous waters of the Lavino are a palette of colors ranging from blue, emerald and turquoise that give the whole environment an aura of dreams and paradisiacal scenarios. The river originates in the Vallone di Santo Spirito in the Maiella mountain range and through Scafa joins the Pescara river. In the park there is also an ancient mill that can be reached with a simple walk / Discover more
The Grotta Scura (Dark Grotto) you will be able to discover important evidence of the Neolithic period. This cave can be considered as a “fossil river”, that is a cavity generated by the ancient flow of water with signs of both human presence and cave animals.
