In the immediate vicinity of Manoppello you can reach the village of Scafa. Just outside the town of Scafa, you will be amazed by the Parco delle Sorgenti of the Lavino river. It is a protected natural area of Abruzzo. The park takes its name from the Lavino river, whose sulphurous waters have a wonderful color between blue and turquoise. The Lavino river originates from the Vallone di Santo Spirito, the northern area of the Maiella mountain massif and, after passing Scafa, it flows into the waters of the Pescara river.
It is a suggestive complex, a palette of colors thanks to the lakes that fade from a beautiful blue color to turquoise due to the presence of particular algae and dissolved sulphates with a varied and rich vegetation.
When to visit the Lavino Park?
If you love nature and outdoor walks, spring (March-May) and autumn (September-November) are the best times. During these months, the weather is mild and you can enjoy the beauty of the park without having to deal with the summer heat or winter cold.
Please note that during the winter months (December-February), the park may be closed or inaccessible due to inclement weather conditions. So, if you plan to visit the park in the winter, we recommend checking the weather and accessibility conditions before planning your visit.
