About L'Aquila

High quality hoto of L'Aquila - Italy

The charming little town of L’Aquila has really a lot to offer. Laying not far from the highest peak of the Apennines, Gran Sasso Mountain, in L’Aquila every visitor can experience the traditional Italian alpine feel. When walking the narrow streets or visiting bustling street markets and boutique shops, one can testify how modern architecture can perfectly blend in the antic one. Just take a look at the contemporary university sitting side by side with old Roman architecture, Baroque and Renaissance buildings and medieval cathedrals. The most famous features of L’Aquila are Fontana delle 99 Cannelle, Basilica of San Bernardino and sixteenth century Castello which is home to the National Museum of Abruzzo. Among the old Roman finds and medieval and Renaissance paintings this museum also exhibits the skeleton of a million-year-old mammoth.
