In the heart of the National Park of Sibillini mountains and karst plans of outstanding environmental value and of great scenic beauty, lies the small village of Castelluccio of Norcia.
Perched on a hill at an altitude of almost 1500, overlooks the “Pian Grande”, the “Pian Piccolo” and “Pian Perduto” and it is surrounded by the Sibillini mountains on which stands the massif of Vettore Mount.
In winter the landscape is muffled by the snow that falls, but since May everything become green, until the explosion of colors and scents in the month of June, which are solemnly celebrated the “Feast of the Flowering”. At the end of July and August, periods during which it collects the precious lentils, countertop colors change again and the king color is gold.
