Sorgenti di Corfinio

This post is also available in: Italiano (Italian)

Corfino is located in Conca Peligna, among the valleys created by the rivers Aterno and Saggitario, 346 m above sea level.

It is a small village rich in history and tradition, blessed by spring water, not yet employed for thermal establishments, that make the soil fertile, whereas, some decades ago, vineyards, apricots, almonds, vegetables and wheat were grown.

A visit in Corfino can begin in piazza Corfino where there still is the shape of the ancient Roman Theatre, whence you access the fortified village characterised by palazzi and narrow streets lined with stone houses. You must visit the San Pelino cathedral, built in 1075 probably on the remains of an ancient pagan temple. The building is now articulated in three main bodies, of which the cathedral and the S. Alessandro oratory represent the oldest part.

Also, you cannot miss the Museo Civico Archeologico, with its vast collection of Neolithic and Medieval findings, organising interactive workshops, guided visits and events, and Parco Archeologico “Don Nicola Colella”. The latter, is made up of three areas: Piano San Giacomo, Tempio Italico, Santuario di Sant’Ippolito, showing the findings of ancient urbanised areas of II – I century b.C.

The second Sunday of August there is the historical parade of Italic Populations, a folklore show running all along the villace, remembering the past.

La seconda domenica di agosto a Corfinio si svolge il corteo storico dei Popoli Italici, una sfilata folcloristica per tutto il paese, in ricordo dei tempi passati.
