In the heart of ancient Sannio, immersed in the enchanting landscape of the Taburno-Camposauro regional park, a few kilometers from the municipality of Benevento, lies Foglianise. Suggestive village in the center of the Vitulanese Valley, it is located about 350 m. above sea level on the slopes of Mount Caruso which connotes the unmistakable skyline. Built in Roman times, the village today preserves ancient farmhouses of medieval origin, precious churches and a suggestive isolated hermitage on Mount Caruso from where you can enjoy a wonderful view of the Sannio. The mild climate, the hilly area and the healthiness of the air make Foglianise the ideal soil for the production of excellent wines in particular, Aglianico and Falanghina, oils and farm products. A place, easily accessible thanks to the Vitulanese valley floor, ideal for spending a few hours in peace, away from traffic and the hustle and bustle of the city.

Let's discover Foglianise and its "Fortuna" together, a country to live, know, love



We will go up to the enchanting Hermitage of San Michele, located halfway up the Mount Caruso, discovering its millenary history, the charm and mystery of its karst cave, telling the stories related to the cult of the Archangel, in a place from which to enjoy wonderful views. Walking through the old farmhouses, among the suggestive alleys and important churches and palaces we will understand the history and evolution of the village, pausing to admire valuable works of art and magnificent architecture, to reach the extraordinary wheat wagons, incredible party machines made entirely in woven straw that every year transform Foglianise on August 16th into a traveling museum, learning the secrets and magic of working to transform a straw in a work of art
