Opi Off The Beaten Path

  • Fondillo Valley Vista

    If you make the effort to climb to the top of Opi you will be rewarded with a lovely view down the Fondillo Valley in the direction of Pescasseroli some 8 km away.

  • Mail box

    Just as in Barrea I spotted some cute mailboxes in the stonework of the houses - like this example. I know Simone likes these so I though I would add this tip :-)

  • Town layout

    Opi has fundamental layout particular to it - two rows of houses following the crest of the hill and meeting at the ends with the homes designed for both humans and animals.The two storeys facing inward to the street are for the family whereas the two storeys entered from outside the town, are used as stables and storerooms.

  • Piazza dei Caduti

    Piazza dei Caduti is the little square of Opi with the war memorial. From here there is a fine viewpoint of the Abruzzo national park.

  • Opi's Origins

    The name Opi is supposedly derived from the pagan goddess of abundance to whom a temple was dedicated during the Italic era. This area was in fact the site of very ancient settlements, from the Paleolithic settlement on Monte Marsicano to the pre-Roman tombs in the Fondillo valley.
