Night Of Witches:
Do you want to spend a night in which everything can happen? So you must come to Castel del Monte (Gran Sasso National Park) the 17th August of each year!
It will be a night where in the middle of the heart of this medieval village actors, dancers and musicians will show you amazing views meanwhile stories of witches will take you back in time between old superstitions and ancient local rituals... a Night of Witches!
You might hear some legend whispered from a door, another one told under a porch or yelled from a balcony... and for some time you could believe again, like people living in there many years ago, that the streets of the city are infested by witches and evil spirits.
All the village of Castel del Monte (elected one of the Most Beautiful Villages of Italy), since 16 August, is a party and out of the medieval village, home to the show, the rest of the village is the soul of wandering faces, entertainment shows, concerts, gastronomic booths with the products typical of the territory. Great success continues to recapture the "Witches Market" made by many craftsmen and peculiar exhibitors.
If between the heat of the torch fire that will illuminate the main square, the inebriating scent of open kitchens and the hypnotic colors of the stands of the market you must be attacked by a crowd of specters, monsters and fairs, don't worrry! You will find comfort in a nice glass of red Montepulciano d'Abruzzo to sip under one of the majestic stone towers ...
But be mindful of evil spirits! They bite!
