Did you know why your village got its name ?

Because of the mining of gesso which is a mineral still used in plaster and to prepare artists canvas! You will probably have seen the sort of dirty grey coloured crystals in the land around the village,

Good choice, great place Gessopalena. Lots of life even in the winter months. In the summer the piazza has a buzzing atmosphere with a good selection of bars. Good transport links to other local towns and easy access to Casoli.

Enjoy it and welcome to Abruzzo and this forum  :)
