Civitella Rovereto

Civitella Roveto

Civitella Roveto is a medieval village enclosed, like a treasure to be protected, by a massive system of fortified walls, which are still well preserved and reminiscent of past centuries, the struggles of conquest, the hard and endless battles. Today the town is divided in two: the modern part, built after the earthquake of 1915, is located on the right bank of the river, while the oldest part is on the opposite bank, on an isolated spur, as a further defense against attacks. The center tells its story with the elegant palaces, with the beautiful portals of houses carved by local stonecutters by working the local stone, and with the coats of arms and religious symbols that stand on the architraves. Finally, walking through the heart of the village, you will meet the characteristic votive niches, carved into the outer walls of the houses, where sacred images are kept. A village that knows how to tell itself, Civitella - a village to discover.
