Walking High

A weekend dedicated to lovers of trekking and hiking: two excursions to discover the Natural park of Aurunci Mountains between artistic beauty and the fascinating and still unspoilt nature.


On the path of Saint Benedict

We will walk on the last stretch of the path that Saint Benedict used from Norcia to reach the mountain where then he built his abbey. From the town of Villa Santa Lucia, we will walk up on a path still used by few remained shepherds, towards the Abbey, passing through woods of black hornbeams, maples and service trees. Moreover we can admire all the Liri valley, the mountain Meta in the Chain of Mainarde and the Mount Matese, Roccamonfina’s Park and the Chain of Aurunci Mountains. This path was also an important German supply route during the famous battle of Montacassino.  The second excursion......

The second excursion will take place on the Aurunci Mountains. We will leave from the Pornito refuge and we will arrive on the top of Redentore Mountain, where is a statue of Christ, placed in the jubilee year 1900, from where you can overlook all the Gulf of Gaeta and the Pontine islands. Walking up the mountain, you can observe the typical vegetation of this area, from the wild sage to helichrysum. Furthermore in this area the Peregrine Falcon and the Common Raven have their nests. We will arrive to the little church of Saint Michael Archangel built in a cavern.
