Canistro

Description

A picturesque village in the Abruzzi, Canistro, in the province of L'Aquila, developed between the V and VI centuries, when the local populations moved towards the Abruzzo hills to defend themselves from constant Barbarian raids. Around the year 1000 it was submitted to the monasticism rule of the Benedictine Abbey of Monte Cassino and was mentioned for the first time in an official document in 1173 (the Catalogue of the Barons ordered by William II).
The village's name derives, by some historians, from a hypothetical kennel, that once stood on the hill where now lies the town, while others argue that it comes from the Latin "canistrum" (basket).

Not to miss:
- the Church of San Sebastian, in the center of the village;
- the Church of St. John the Baptist, which was destroyed by an earthquake in 1915 and whose remains are still visible;
- the Church of Our Lady of Fonticella, named this way for the presence of a water source inside a nearby cave;
- Palazzo Vecchiarelli.
