Abbadia di Fiastra
Nature and spirituality to be lived in silence
“Ora et Labora”, “Cruce et aratro”, these are the fundamental rules of life that have always inspired and guided the work of the Cistercians of the Abbey of Chiaravalle di Fiastra, a work that, in hundreds of years, has realized a priceless heritage that has enhanced the fundamental value of this territory.
The Abbadia di Fiastra Nature Reserve was created to protect the lands belonging to the Cistercian monks and shaped by them over the centuries and where it is still possible to enjoy a welcoming and harmonious environment, expression of a balanced relationship between man and nature.
The Abbey of Chiaravalle di Fiastra, moreover, with its almost intact environments and still inhabited by the monks, offers all visitors, habitual or not, the possibility of participating in religious life and immersing themselves in a suggestive atmosphere of spirituality.
In addition to bringing to life the slow rhythms of the Macerata hills, the Reserve is also the perfect place to play sports. Along its paths immersed in the green it is in fact possible to walk or to make excursions by mountain bike or on horseback.
The Blue Mountains and their small enchantements
Legend has it that in the cave of the Sibyl, located on the homonymous mountain, lived “the illustrious prophetess who rarely reveals her secrets”. Necromancers and lonely knights came from all over Europe, after exhausting journeys, hoping to get an oracle from the Sibyl. The magic of the past is expressed today in the enchantment of the places that make the Monti Sibillini National Park a spectacle of nature. Leaving from Loro Piceno, the hills and valleys of the Unione Montana dei Monti Azzurri are a puzzle of different colors that vary with the seasons. On them the eye rests spacing on the horizon limited by the Sibillini and feeds on sensations and small enchantments: ancient trees, rushing streams and foaming waterfalls, silver lakes, farmhouses, small villages embraced by their ancient walls, churches with their elegant stone portals. The National Park welcomes its visitors with a great variety of landscapes: narrow and impressive gorges such as the suggestive “Gole dell’ Infernaccio”, flowering meadows such as the famous Piani di Castelluccio, mountains with peaks over 2.000 meters as the Priora, the Monte Bove, woods and lakes with clear water such as Lake Fiastra and Lake Pilato. In the territory of the Park you can try excursions with trekking, mountain bike and horse riding, or for the most adventurous, you can try free flight or practice winter sports at the Ussita Frontignano and Bolognola ski facilities.
