I Cavalieri dell’Antera is in Vittorito (377m asl), on the hills that surround the western edge of the Peligna valley, authentic vineyard country producing excellent wines. It is easily reached by car from the Sulmona–Pratola Peligna exit of the A25 (10km) motorway. The name derives from vicus turritus, namely a “village with towers”, of which there are still remains as there are of the characteristic tower-houses that distinguish the upper part of the town, on the slopes of Mount Castellano. The Peligna valley’s most important city – noble Sulmona – is only 20km away.
