farro ears

The Sagra del Farro takes place every year at Abbateggio, in mid-August, in occasion of the village patron's day, August 10th, San Lorenzo (Saint Lawrence)'s day.

This festival was born to celebrate a cereal that over the years has been superseded by the most modern grain qualities. In Abbateggio farro was rediscovered by the finding of some seeds of ancient peasant families. Subsequently this cereal spread to small local producers, becoming one of the symbols of this village.

During the festival it is possible to taste this cereal in many variants, from the more rustic dishes made according to tradition, to more modern re-elaborations to satisfy every kind of palate.


Abruzzo is a place of ancient and recent traditions. Each village, over time, has created unique festivals or traditional events, even based on resources found in their territory. Some are of a religious nature and are among the oldest. Others are born from the passion and work of the villagers. Some have become part of the tradition, others have just been born.

Here are some of the most famous in the vicinity of the farm stay:
