Sextantiom Le Grotte Della Civita

"Santo Stefano di Sessanio is a fortified medieval village. It is located in the mountains of Abruzzo at 1250 meters above sea level, inside the Gran Sasso and Monti della Laga national park. The village is a classic example of an Italian medieval hill town, with perimeter walls encircling houses and squares. During the last century, the “modernisation” of rural Italy compromised the architectural heritage of many of its countryside villages and towns."
