Castellucio, a small village nestled with the Apennine Mountains in central Italy, is best known for its fiorita, or flowering that takes place in its fields each spring.
Thousands of colorful flowers create a patchwork pattern on the plateau and feature lentils, poppies, violets, narcissus, daisies, clovers and more, making it one of the most stunning springtime landscapes in Italy.

Castelluccio di Norcia is a small village, that lies in the “Parco nazionale dei Monti Sibillini” in the Umbria region, and with its 1400 metres above the sea is one of the highest in the Appennini.
The historical centre is placed on the top of a hill, in the middle of a tableland bearing the same name, very wide, where the famous lentils are coltivated.
It is the blooming of the latter, with other kind of flowers, that offer between the end of May and the beginning of June a truly unique sight.
