    sandy's trusty friend

    It seemed to us that the villagers of Pescassseroli liked their dogs but did not often take them for a walk. Well there was no need for them to! Several times when we were hiking a dog would accompany us at the start and even show us the way if we were unsure of the direction!!

    This St Bernard cross breed accompanied us one for the whole of a 5 hour walk and was truly a faithful guide - pity he didn't have any brandy though :-)

    He was a wimp though when he saw the dogs guarding the cows in the fields - he came and stood behind Dave when they barked at him!

    Women in Black

    local costume

    The Local dress may look as if the local women are in mourning, but thre is a little story to this. The old costumes of Pescasseroli were quite grand and colourful, however back in 1846 whilst going to Ischia for thermal treatments the women became the objects of unwanted attention in Naples. They sought refuge in the neighbouring island of Procida were they exchanged costumes with the local women there. When they returned the costumes were liked so much that they adopted the black ones.
