    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.

    My photo is of the statue of Caesar Claudius found in The Round Room of The Vatican Museum. After doing some reading, I thought it was noteworthy that amongst some of the infrastructure projects completed under Claudius, this 4 mile tunnel is pretty significant. It was a huge drainpipe for Lake Fucino. At 320 cubic ft per second, it’s not even close to the Niagara Falls at 85,000 cubic feet per second. But, it is close to the water supply for a small town. It has a slope of 8 feet per mile which is impressive for the year 20 AD. It took 11 years to cut through a mountain and dump into the Liri River. And, it turned out to be a huge boost to the Roman economy because it turned a lot of the land into very arable and furtile agricultural soil.

    We enjoyed our train visit to Avezzano but really wish this castle was open. I read reviews of others that also found it closed before we arrived, so we weren't surprised, but it does seem like a lost opportunity to enhance people's experience of this city.
