The Town of Aielli

Aielli is a medieval town in the province of L’Aquila (Abruzzo), situated 1.030 m above sea level, and is one of the highest inhabited centers of the Marsica region. Surrounded by the Sirente mountain chain, inside the protected area of the Natural Regional Park Sirente-Velino. The village lays on a rocky spur and because of this dominant position, in Roman Times it was a strategically important point for the defense of the territory and for the observation of the communication routes.

Walking along the roads that radiate towards the top of the village, you reach the famous “Torre delle Stelle” from which you can enjoy a splendid view on the entire Fucino plain and on the villages that surround the former lake.
