AMONG THE CENTURIES-OLD WOODS OF PICENO: THE WAY OF WATER

 
ONE DAY TOUR

An itinerary dedicated to relaxation and nature to discover Acquasanta Terme, woods and waterfalls which surround it. We will discover the benefits of sulphurous waters of Acquasanta termal baths. We will immerse ourselves in the greenery and silence of chestnut, fir, beech and oak centuries-old woods, where we will learn tree species used by tradition.

Starting from Arcera Farmhouse, we will take the “Lu Vurghe” path, that leads to the pools of sulphurous waters, already known and used by the Romans, who exploited the healing properties of these waters.

On the map of the itineraries of the Roman army the city is reported with the name “Vicus ad Aquas” and historical sources attest to the presence of an ancient thermal pool where the ancient church Santa Maria stands today. Upon returning from the path, at the Arcera Farmhouse, we will attend to a cooking class and we will assist in the preparation of a typical dish made with products that territory offers.

After lunch we will reach The Forcella Waterfalls located in an uncontaminated environment rich in vegetation. Near the waterfalls there is the Pompili Mil, one of the oldest and best preserved mills of the region. We will conclude our itinerary with a rich snack at the Arcera Farmhouse, where we will taste the typical products of the woods of this area.
