The Marche/Abruzzo region
Abruzzo, or "Abruzzi" according to old, is a special region in many ways.
First is called "the green area of Europe" for the highest percentage of land protected by Parks and Reserves (even as much as 33% of the territory is bound, the highest percentage in Europe).
Second, the high mountains, including the three highest peaks of the Apennines and the perennial glacier most southern of Europe, are very close to the sea that in some seasons you can go for a swim in the morning and afternoon, in just 45 minutes, go skiing in the mountains! Although this factor has contributed to its rich biodiversity (one of the major in Europe), being able to vary from landscapes of the coast, with palm trees and Mediterranean vegetation, to the high mountain, with alpine stars and glacial relicts like the "Mugo" pine or rare animals.
Even from a geomorphological point of view the territory manifests deep diversity. Consequently, the mountains are very different from them, as well as ancient villages built by the man which, using materials found on site, greatly changes its architecture and building styles within a few minutes. In just a short time everything is different: nature, villages, traditions and customs, ancient economic activities.
Another prerogative of the area is the extreme preservation and attachment to its own traditions and rituals of the people who live "separated" from the various valleys, along the coast or in the villages at high altitudes, thanks to the pastoral economy that pushed the economy and the wealth on top since the Middle Ages ... . Even today in some areas seems to live life scenes or ancestral rites medieval, almost always actually of pagan origin and pre-Roman times.
The people of Abruzzo, notoriously conservative and obstinate pride, jealously preserve and perpetuate their traditions not for turistic re-enactments ... but as they feel those deep inside.
You will realize that the beauty of this region lies not only in its monuments, in its particularly wild and varied nature, in the exceptional biodiversity of flora and fauna, but especially in the way in which traditions, customs, ways of life, ancient cultures and religious rites were preserved.
The Case Catalano is located in the green mountain, in Giumentin Valley to 4 km from Abbateggio on the slopes of the Majella National Park, in a natural setting ideal for mountain biking and hiking. Framed by the beautiful village wide view that encompasses the Majella massif and the beautiful valleys, down to the sea. Within minutes you can reach the location of Maielletta for winter sports, Caramanico spa and nature reserve Orfento Valley, the ancient center of Abbateggio and the archaeological site of Valle Giumentina, places of worship of the hermitages of Celestine V and San Liberatore a Majella, St. Mary and St. Clement in Arabona Casauria, splendid examples of Benedictine and Cistercian architecture. You can also visit the historical towns of L'Aquila, Sulmona, Atri and the Maiella National Park, the Abruzzo National Park and National Park of Gran Sasso and Monti della Laga.
