Discovering the fortifications of Irpinia
Irpinia is a special land full of treasures of art and architecture dotted with centuries-old manors, places of deep religiousness, an oasis of unspoiled nature. But not only. Irpinia is a living area, permeated by popular traditions, culture and peasant beliefs. Above all, culinary traditions that follow them allow you to experience itineraries of taste, full of fragrances and aromas, sparkling and genuine. Casalbore, known as "the country of the fifty springs" has a medieval center with a medieval imprint. This small village holds a unique place in the world. It is about Castles Museum, an original educational-exhibition itinerary dedicated to the centuries-old stone giants of the area, housed in the premises of the castle area which flanks the Norman Tower, symbol of the medieval village.
