In this area you can perform various activities in contact with nature, such as, among others, trekking, Nordic walking (the owner of the structure is an instructor in the Italian School of Nordic Walking), climbing, canyoning, mountain biking, snowshoeing in the winter and also nighttime observation of the sky, thanks to low levels of light pollution.
Our valleys are also rich in pastoral caves as pastoralism was obviously one of the main activities of the country.
In fact, the “monticazione”, vertical transhumance was practised, that is the displacement of the flocks from the village up to the tops of the Maiella in the spring and summer periods.
Stone was the other main resource, and you can visit the stone quarries from which the local stonecutters obtained the material for their commissioned works, ranging from church facades, to altars, baptisteries, lecterns, funeral monuments and works intended for the embellishment of private houses.
Of particular interests are the “pile”, stone pots, in which oil or grain were kept and which also served to barter various goods, going to the valleys where agriculture was more prosperous, and receiving in return the seeds to be used for crops on our mountain.
Walking around the village you can still admire facades of buildings, door jambs and capitals carved with inspiration and imagination. But most of the works of Pennese stonecutters are outside the region, in Italy and even abroad.
