Casalvieri. Climbing in the Melfa Gorge

Casalvieri. Climbing in the Melfa Gorge

Along the Melfa Gorge you can experience the mountains with rock climbing on the walls. 

Between Casalvieri and Roccassecca there are at least 3 rocky cliffs, with steep, high and continuous walls.

It is remembered that these walls and caves have hosted for centuries hermits but also brigands whose legends still echo in the nearby villages.

The 3 recommended climbing sites are: the Hermitage of the Holy Spirit, the Christmas Gift and Hollywood.

Each of the walls has several possible paths with varying degrees of difficulty.

Among these walls live many species of birds such as birds of prey, woodpeckers and crows. To avoid disturbing them it is absolutely forbidden to climb into the cave openings.
