Sibillini Norcia Valnerina

The Park of Sibillini’s Mountain - Norcia - Valnerina


During your stay at La Cascina di Opaco you will discover the beauties of our land and villages such as Norcia, a place of remote origins where spirituality and the worldly tradition of meat processing are equally rooted.

Founded in the PreRoman Age Norcia is the home town of Saint Benedict, Patron of Europe. Nowadays, it owes its notoriety to its unique products, such as: sausages, hams, pecorino and ricotta cheese as well as black truffle. Every year a market exhibition of fine truffle takes place by the end of February.

Thus, Norcia is the ideal venue for gourmets as well as for lovers of sports and outdoor activities. The farmhouse is located in the heart of the unspoiled nature of the Park of Sibillini Mountains.

In this area, between Umbria and Marche’s border, you can enjoy a sensation of peace and solitude and experience a wild unspoiled nature. Thanks to its enchanting landscapes, blankets, abrupt rock faces, gorges and snowy valley crossed by rivers and torrents, plateaus and ancient medieval villages, the Park of Sibillinis’ Mountains is considered by many naturalists as the most fascinating place of Appenninis’ chain.

Among beech trees, woods and fields, rare species of animals such as wolf, wildcat, peregrine falcon, golden eagle are easy to find.

From June and August these bare and rocky soils turn into a lively dotted canvas with blue gentians, yellow senecio cineraria, white buttercups and pulzatillas, purple silenes and sempervivium tectorum.

In the ancient medieval village of Castelluccio the thousand-year work of man balances with a hostile and wild nature. A part of this area, consisting of Pian Grande and Pian Piccolo is covered by fields of lentil’s cultivation and prairies where flocks pasture. From here it is possible to admire the magnificent Monte Vettore (2476 mm), the highest mountain of the Park.

In June “la Fiorita” takes place: an event not to be missed when red poppies, yellow lentils, bluebottles entirely cover the plateaus as a limitless blanket of lively colours.
