Camarda Town: The forgotten village. The hospitality. How to get there




Camarda is one of the several unknown burghs which the world forgot and left neglected. The burgh was depopulated during the XX century, but kept alive its ancient traditions and culture.

Camarda is part of the Commune of L'Aquila and it is situated in the middle of Valleverde valley. It is surrounded by several other small villages: Assergi, Aragno, Paganica and Filetto.

From afar, Camarda comes into sight quickly with its Medieval Tower, which was used to defend the burgh a long time ago. Under this tower, an ancient village sleeps, silently and peacefully, and its tranquility is only augmented by the murmuring of a small stream flowing close by and the gurgling of the several fountains. The silence is sometimes broken by the strokes of the old Clock Tower.

Its location in the Gran Sasso National Park and close to Assergi and to ski resort of Fonte Cerreto (or "Villetta") makes Camarda a beautiful place where to spend a leisurely weekend, in the middle of the Nature and the typical Abruzzo traditions. Walking through the narrow streets of Camarda, meeting shepherds guiding their sheep to pastures and old women spinning, like walking into the past.

Every year here through the stone streets of this burgh, one of the best shows of the Gran Sasso National Park takes place here: the Living Christmas Créche.
