Assergi Town: The door of the National Park. The Hospitality. How to get there





Under the Gran Sasso Mountain, in the green valley of Rajale river, an ancient small village seems to whisper distant past stories to the wayfarer. It is the village of Assergi.
Included in the past in the Commune of Camarda village, wich was suppressed in 1927, today Assergi is part of the Province of L'Aquila. The village is about 10 kilometres from the city and this is why it was not left completely as it happened in other villages, like Santo Stefano di Sessanio or Rocca Calascio.
Assergi is at an altitude of 825 metres, higher than L'Aquila and Camarda, the close village from wich Assergi is about 2 kilometres. Near Assergi, but an higher altitude, there is San Pietro della Ienca, wich has become Pope John Paul II' Sanctuary just few months ago.
Near Assergi, there is an other beautiful sacred place: the Saint Frank's hermitage, that Saint who died in the absolute solitude, in a cave near the village and San Pietro della Ienca.
Today, Assergi is an important touristic place because it is the main entrance to the Gran Sasso and Laga Mountain's National Park, which is based here. But also it is important  because near the village there is the "Villetta" or "Fonte Cerreto", the place where it is based the cableway station and from where it is possible to get Campo Imperatore, the most famous and suggestive peak of Gran Sasso Mountain, at an altitude of 2128 metres.
Moreover, near Assergi, within the Gran Sasso Mountain, it is based the Gran Sasso National Laboratory, wich has become very famous today for the extraordinary discovery about the speed of the uncharged particles. It can be visited just if the visit is booked.

On a small rock hill and dipped into the silence of a flourishing nature, Assergi is surrounded by stone walls, over wich it stands the clock tower telling the hours, the days, the years throughtout the centuries. 
Who knows how many joies and sorrows that clock tower marked; how many generations of farmers, coming back from the fields, looked at that; how many young lovers got stopped to stare at that, between the kisses, in order to know how many minutes the greedy hands had stolen from them and how many minutes were left before the sunrise and their parents's awakening.
With that clock tower, Assergi tells to traveller ancient stories, those stories wich are inside ourselves and get repeated throughout the century as well as the mellifluous singsong, played by the teeming water of the river brushing the burgh...
