NORCIA IN NATIONAL PARK OF SIBILLINI MOUNTAINS
The National Park of the Sibillini Mountains will enchant you with its hidden landscapes.
Among the summits of the Sibillini Mountains lies the largest karstic plateau in Europe, a place full of suggestions, history and magic. In every season Castelluccio renews its splendor. They change their colors and perfumes. It’s the place to do out-door sports: mountain biking, hang gliding, paragliding, cross-country skiing, trekking on foot and on horseback. The sky encounters the earth in the small ponds hidden in a valley away from everything and everyone, where horses in the wild, with their foals, move freely. The ideal place to take long walks and enjoy the spectacle.
