Pescosansonesco


by P1etro

"Castle & Benedictine Church"

This name means Rock of Sansone, named after the man who owned it in the 10th Century. It has been practically abandoned as it is located on a geologically unstable buttress, on the last sharp, slopes of Gran Sasso. The inhabited center has moved to the east of the old part, where the wall of the castle remains, as does the Church of San Nicola, built in the 13th Century by Benedictines and still in blocks of stone. The Sanctuary of Beato Nunzio Sulprizio is a place of pilgrimage, built in the place where the young man went to cure plague. Take the A25 from Pescara, toward Castiglione at Casauria and continue on the same road, after Castiglione and before Corvara.
