Abruzzo: Pescocostanzo

Pescocostanza is an ancient village overlooking the Quarto Grande (on the hills of Monte Calvario). It is also a fine ski resort. The town is lovely with graceful piazzas, palazzi and fountains. The town is known as an arts and crafts center and you’ll see evidence of this as you stroll through town and stop at the many artisan shops (lace, carving, ironworks). The very beautiful Santa Maria del Colle (11th century) is definitely worth a look if only to see the golden ceiling and the lovely statues located there. Stop in at the Gesu e Maria cloister — it’s very beautiful (17th century). You can also visit the home of OttavioColecchi (philosopher/mathematician).
