    View at peak

    Its easy to get off the beaten path is Pescasseroli - just any of the footpaths out of town.
    Try get a map from the Tourist Infomation centre in the town and plan a few routes.
    A paticular favourite route was along paths B1, R6 and B2 a hard slog at times but just look at that view!

    Up to the Castel Mancino

    Via Castello

    In this section I'd like to take you on a virtual journey up to the evocative ruins of Castel Mancino with their great views over Pescasseroli.....

    To reach the ruins stand as if coming out of the town hall - the Municipio - in the town centre turn left and half left again towards the Pensione al Castello. Take the road between the pensione and the Ufficio del Zona. The old town centre is on your right as you walk up the road. Turn right at a T-junction - it shoud be signed for the Castel anyway. - and then onto the Via Castel - very appropriate - on your left.

    castel pathway

    Continue on the Via Castello past a hairpin bend - you will see stations of the cross along the way. The road ends shortly at the cemetry. At the fifth station you will see a sentiero natura signpost leading into the trees which is our path.

    chapel of the Madonna

    Another longish hike is to the Santuario (chapel) di Monte Tranquillo - worth it for the views.

    birds eye view of Pescasseroli

    ..but most of all I liked the view of the town and all the rooftops, seeing how it was laid out and with the River Sangro trickling through.

    what a view!

    Its worth the hike up - just look at the view of the National Park around - in the distance the ski-lift hill can be seen at the far end of the town.

    path up to the castle.

    This castel with its commanding position and views over Pescasseroli was once a pre-Roman fortified township.

    Castel pathway III

    pathway to the castle

    The pathway up to the castle is a little bit steeper and stonier towards the top but it only takes about 40 - 50 minutes in total and then you have great views over the town amidst the castle ruins.

    castel mancino ruins

    The path zig-zags up fairly easily through the trees. Parts of the ruins can be passed at several places.
