Montefegatesi in the autumn sun

If you take the road to Montefegatesi that goes past Monti di Villa and keep your eyes peeled you will spot a perfect place to stop to get excellent views of this gorgeous village. I went with friends in November and was rewarded with this lovely sight.

Every time I visit Montefegatesi I am reminded of the tenacity of the early settlers to these mountain villages. They must have been made of stern stuff.

  1. Lovely photos of a beautiful ancient mountain village. Although I spent a month in Italy some years ago (there’s a post about it on my blog), I did not visit that region. I would certainly like to! Now following you…

  2. I agree, Debra, I’m constantly amazed how those villagers built their homes and churches in such high altitudes and rocky terrain, and the fact these buildings stood the tests of time. Montefegatesi is truly a beautiful mountain village basking in the Autumn sun. I feel sorry for other villages wrecked by recent earthquakes, and hope they get the help they needed.
