The tower of the stars

Torre delle Stelle

The epicenter of the project is the Tower of the Stars (“Torre delle Stelle”), built in 1356 by Roger II of the Counts of Celano, the tower is easily reachable by walking along the roads that lead to the top of the village. From here you can enjoy a splendid view of the entire plain of the Fucino and the villages surrounding the former lake.

Today the tower is a qualified astronomical observatory equipped with telescopes allowing the observation of the Sun and the stars. It is also a planetarium capable of projecting 3000 stars onto a dome of six meters in diameter.
