Broccostella

This small village located in the hills, dominates the Conca di Sora, at the entrance to the Valle di Comino.

It was strategically important in the Middle Ages, and for this reason it still preserves the visible ruins of a castle and watchtower.

Famous for producing terracotta, this pretty Ciociaro village promotes its crafts and products at antique markets and with numerous exhibitions throughout the year.

Walks in the historic centre are made even more pleasurable by the numerous churches and the conspicuous artefacts to be seen, in particular weapons and furnishings dating back to the Neolithic era.

Highlights include the 9th-century Church of San Michele Arcangelo and the distinctive rural Church of the Madonna delle Chiaie, surrounded by olive trees and a fascinating setting.

The village is also characteristic for its “sugar-coated hills”. From atop these hills is a view of the enchanting mirror of the nature reserve of the Posta Fibreno lake, from which the river of the same name winds along, popular for hobby trout fishing.

Along with crayfish, freshwater fish is used in the local recipes.
