If it happens to you to be in Avezzano, you can't avoid taking a walk up on Mount Salviano! The walk takes about an hour from the bottom to the top, but it's a very involving experience. While ypu are walking, you see the whole Fucino Highland in front of you with its squared fields, then the mountains that surround it and the sky that seems so close to be touched.
If this is not enough for you, you could enjoy the gentle breeze that blows between the woods of the mountain as well as the squirrels that walk around the place.
On the top on the mountain, ypu can find the modern Sanctuary of the Virgo Pietraquariae, the holy patron of Avezzano. The sanctuary is new because the old building was destroyed by the earthquake in 1915, but inside you can find the old picture of the Virgin, that is still a wonderful thing to see.
