CASTEL SAN VINCENZO – ROCCHETTA A VOLTURNO
San Vincenzo al Volturno: one of the most important abbeys in Europe from the time of Charlemagne. We will visit the remains of the churches, refectory, kitchens, guest quarters and major basilica of the 9th century. On the site, in the crypt of Epiphanius (which can only be visited in small groups) there is also one of the most important pictorial cycles of the whole early Middle Ages linked to the figure of Mary. Visit to the 12th century New Abbey where a community of Benedictine nuns still operates today.
Country of bagpipers that still exports these ancient musical instruments all over the world. Visit to the village, to the Bagpipe Museum and to the workshop of a builder and player of bagpipes.
