Sulmona lies 400 m above sea level at the head of a valley in the centre of Abruzzo, delimited by the highest mountains in the range of the Apennines.
Sulmona is a town noted for its art and architecture, in the fertile and picturesque Valle Peligna, almost at the foot of Monte Morrone, where Pietro da Morrone was a hermit before he became Pope Celestine V. Sulmona, the birthplace in 48 BC of the great poet Ovid, still conserves a remarkably intact heritage of monuments and works of art that is today enhanced by cultural events, tourist amenities and sports facilities of the highest standards, making the town a particularly pleasant and interesting destination for holidays.
In the narrow streets, avenues and tree-lined squares stand both modest and splendid houses, which present a display of the finest architecture adorned with carved windows, sculptural fragments, traces of fresco work.
Each palazzo and church, the quiet cloisters and courtyards which almost remain hidden to the indiscrete glances of the hasty passers-by house suggestive treasures, stairways and balconies, heraldic coats of arms and capitals, sculptured arcades and wells; signs of an ilustrious past, fragments of life from the past, evidence of a cultured civilization, all of which gives value and consistency to this town's lifestyle.
Sulmona is made even more charming by the large choice of accommodation facilities on offer.
