Palleroso, Monterotondo, Antisciana, Gragnanella, Cerretoli, Colle and Rontano are typical villages, of ancient origin, located in picturesque environments and their trails, crossing green woods, allow to dive in nature discovering at the same time the story of a population with its daily rhythms and rural civilization architecture.
