Each year, between the first days of June and mid-July , the plateau of Castelluccio di Norcia becomes a witness to an event unique and wonderful, The Flowering.
The monotonous color tint of the pastures is broken by a palette of colors from yellow ocher to red.
Everything is entrusted to the climate of the season and nothing is ever predictable! Floral species that dye the Pian Grande and the Pian Perduto in this period are countless and when you are walking along the paths can be meet: gentianellas, daffodils, violets, poppies, buttercups, daffodils, purple eugeniae, clovers, shamrocks and much more.
