Description

Gessopalena is a town in the Abruzzo 644 m above the sea level. Inhabited since Pre-Roman times, in the early Middle Ages it consisted of a group of houses clinging on a big rock called “Pietra Lucente” on top of which was an ancient castle. The medieval citadel was seriously damaged in an earthquake in 1933 and destroyed in Second World War. What was left of the ancient centre was recently restored and transformed in the open-air “Museo del Gesso”.
