There is a time of day when the sun illuminates the picturesque village, reflecting on the blue waters of the lake of the same name, and perhaps it is there that Barrea expresses all its magic, its being a mountain village, one thing with nature that surrounds it. Perched on a rocky spur, is part of the National Park of Abruzzo, Lazio and Molise and the landscape that surrounds it is so beautiful as to look like a postcard: mountainous peaks, beech forests, clear waterways, all this makes Barrea an ideal destination for lovers of hiking. From here there are also paths that lead to Lake Vivo, Lake Pantaniello, Lake Barrea and the Resuni refuge. The historic heart of the village, however, is the Castle, built between the eleventh and twelfth centuries, which tells with its presence the ancient history of the territory.
