Castelluccio di Norcia: a show of nature and flavours

The piana (level) of Castelluccio di Norcia, with the legendary and mysterious Sibillini Mountains in the background, seems a lunar landscape located at an altitude of 1400m.
Enchanting in spring with it’s striking green or magic in winter with the snow covering its intact landscape without buildings,
the Piana of Castelluccio is the good place to play sports or just rest. IT’s maybe at its best in the period of the flower blooming when thousands and thousands of flowers colour the valley. From the red poppies to blue bottles, from yellow daisies to the white flowers of the leguminous plants: around the mid March, this plateau turns into a natural palette.
