If you are planning to visit the town of Castel di Sangro in Abruzzo, in this short article you will find some ideas for visiting that will allow you to get to know some of the most characteristic places of Castel di Sangro.
Castel di Sangro is nestled in the mountains of Abruzzo not far from other interesting tourist centers such as Roccaraso, Pescocostanzo, Rivisondoli on one side and Barrea, Alfedena, Opi on the other.
During a visit to Castel di Sangro, we recommend that you visit the historic center, the beautiful Piazza del Plebiscito and climb up to the Basilica of Santa Maria Assunta is the main religious building of Castel di Sangro. The basilica is located in the upper part of the town, the Civita, and in 1902 it was declared a national monument. The structure has three naves with two orders of arches, with two bell towers.
If you have time and you will be minimally trained you can follow the path that will take you to the ruins of the ancient castle.
Maybe you will be able to rest and relax among the warm colors of nature in the Parco Italia which is located in the city center. Here we see the park thanks to the photos of our Social Media Mammager. Play area for children, area equipped with barbecue and benches, river that crosses the park and an area that becomes a small beach in the summer.
If you are a bicycle lover or if you just want to admire the surroundings of Castel di Sangro, we recommend that you take the cycle path that connects Castel di Sangro with another small jewel, Villa Scontrone, crossing the Sangro Valley, along the river and following the path of an ancient sheep track. The stretch is very beautiful, 6.4km long, which starts next to the Castel di Sangro fishing reserve (at the metal bridge).
