The village of Aielli, whose territory is part of the Regional Park Velino-Sirente, is a treasure chest to discover. Lying on a calcareous rocky spur, it is surrounded by two streams: this position, easily defensible from enemy attacks, has made it for centuries the ideal place for defense and observation of the territory. The village, then, is rich in historical and artistic elements of great value, including the imposing medieval tower of 1300, called Torre delle Stelle which today is an important astronomical observatory open to the public, which also houses the Museum of Heaven and a scientific library. To close in beauty, deserves a parenthesis the local cuisine. The typical products of Aielli are strongly linked to the strong flavors of Abruzzo tradition: wines, sausages, oils, cheeses and sweets tell the story of the close interweaving that unites the local community to the land.
