Castiglione is a medieval village in the valley of the river Fino in the Abruzzo region, surrounded by green slopes and hills that gently merge into each other. The place offers a breathtaking view of the Gran Sasso, and is also called "bella addormentata" (sleeping beauty). Abruzzo is the green heart of Europe, 60% of its territory consists of national parks. It is the most sparsely populated region of Italy. The small grounds are lovingly cultivated by farmers who can be described as jealous guardians of traditions, culture, and values.
This is Castiglione Messer Raimondo. The medieval village was built on an ancient vestine, and subsequently on a Roman settlement. There are numerous beautiful churches to visit, such as the church of San Donato with baroque ornaments and eight altars, or the church of Santa Maria, which was built on the ruins of an ancient temple of the goddess Diana. The hill "San Giorgio" is also worth seeing, and is located about 500 meters above sea level. From the top of the Gran Sasso, you have a wonderful view of the Italian archaeological site, and the beaches of the nearby coast. Other medieval villages such as Appignano, Penne, and Atri are easily accessible, all of which are among the most beautiful villages in Italy.
