Molise Tremiti Islands

A treasure chest of past civilisations, Molise is romantic, a little-known land, rich in smells and flavours, it preserves its origins and sacred and popular traditions which are still handed down from generation to generation. A surprisingly varied showcase compared to the size of its territory, which preserves authoritative historical evidence in the Samnite and Roman archaeological sites, a widespread and remote architecture of medieval villages and rural areas that preserve an archaic and mystical atmosphere, testifying to a life linked to past. It is worth visiting these places, getting to know the people who populate them, immersing yourself in a culture in which the guest takes on sacred meanings.
