"Molise is one of the most secret districts in the country, deep but little known... Molise is romantic, bewitched and is strangely reminiscent of certain parts of Northern Europe, for example places in Scotland and Ireland." (From Guido Piovene's "Viaggio in Italia") 1) Termoli and Tremiti islands The coast is just twenty minutes from the farm, the region has thirty kilometers of beaches Termoli, the main town on the coast, has a medieval old quarter, once only inhabited by fishermen, the Swabian castle of Frederick II, and the tower of the meridian which marks the point where the 42nd parallel north crosses the 15th meridian east. The Adriatic sea beaches and crystal clear waters have the EU “blue flag”. From the busy fishing port you can take the ferry and spend a day or two on the Tremiti islands (1,5 hour trip): yachting, scuba diving and snorkeling are the most popular activities, but there is also a Benedictine monastery. 2) The Gargano peninsular The nearby Gargano promontory (Apulia): a one day tour. Monte Sant’Angelo has beautiful churches and a sanctuary dedicated to St Michael; the Foresta Umbra: amazing deep cool forest. The seaside towns of Peschici and Vieste and the breathtaking bays with their white cliffs and deep blue sea. A scenic coastal route is a must. 3) Larino and nearby villages 10 Km away: Larino, an ancient roman settlement, you can see the roman amphitheatre with interesting mosaics and the beautiful medieval cathedral. From Larino you can drive to Casacalenda (40min) a very pretty village, there are companies making very good products (cheese and sauces, jams, pasta and breads, biscuits etc) with a nature reserve; Ripabottoni: has very interesting ancient houses and is now also inhabited by foreigners who have bought and renovated many properties. This itinerary concerns the hill towns and views of Molise’s great asset: nature. 4) The mountains of Molise The mountains, which are such an ever-present feature of the countryside, appear in all their majestic beauty in the massif of the Matese. In winter at Campitello skiing is possible, there are large equipped areas, splendid pistes for downhill skiing, hotels and residences on the plateau of the same name. The entire massif is a combination of natural and scenic values in kaleidoscopic succession from one peak to another, from one valley to the next, from the Crocella Pass (1219m) to Monte Mutria (1823 m), from the Gallinola (1923 m) to Monte Miletto (2050 m). Agnone. This hill town has an historic, working bell factory and museum that still makes bells for the Vatican and all over the world. There are also thirteen very interesting churches with amazing woodcarvings from the Neapolitan school (1600) and paintings, ancient Venetian houses and much more. Pietrabbondante is very near, it has an ancient pre-roman (Samnite) amphitheatre, in a beautiful landscape. Capracotta is also close, it is a village once inhabited by shepherds, there is a beautiful view as it is quite high and you can visit a pretty botanical garden too, cross-country skiing is a popular winter activity. You must not miss Altilia, a Roman settlement with a beautiful temple and theatre, situated in the plane under Sepino, a mountain village with spring water. This territory was a meeting and crossing point for the ancient Italic peoples and has kept the traces of its past both through the artistic monuments and the traditions of its friendly population. Some example of its historic and artistic wealth are: the Romanesque churches like San Maria of Casalpiano, the sober Gothic style of the crypt of San Maria Assunta in Guardialfiera, the austere castle at Civitacampomarano, the numerous canvases from the Neapolitan school that embellish the inner room of the churches, above all those of Ripabottoni, Casacalenda and Montorio, the organs and the church ornaments and vestments that have been finely inlaid by the skillful local artisans. The little villages, that are climbing up the hilly slopes and are crossed by characteristic and winding alleys, are enlivened during the feast days. The religious holidays are a unanimous expression in the squares and in the streets, with the sounds of ancient instruments like the "bufu" and propitiatory rites that are between the sacred and the profane. From uncontaminated woods to Mediterranean vegetation, the landscape varies from the green plains of the coasts of Molise to the severe hilly territory that guards the old natural resources. Keen horseriders can discover the very ancient Celano - Foggia sheep track, along which which flocks reached Apulia from Abruzzo in the past to spend the winter. Old taverns, rural churches and old farms dot the journey showing a lively, unforgotten and bygone life. Popular and religious celebrations Spectacular popular celebrations take each year in Molise. They include: a race of ox-drawn carts in honour of Saint Leo in San Martino in Pensilis on April 30th, at Ururi on May 3rd.
