Capitignano, located in the Upper Aterno Valley, is not only the fulcrum of a crossroads of history, archaeological evidence and traditions, but it represents also the geological boundary of the two different mountain ranges that are the beating heart of the Park: the Gran Sasso with its limestone and dolomite pinnacles, and the Monti della Laga, the kingdom of sandstone and water.
Located in Capitignano near the Valico delle Capannelle, the Park Visitor Centre stands with the aim of enhancing and promoting in all its peculiarities the Gran Sasso and Monti della Laga National Park. The operators of the structure will be happy to show the tourists the charm of unspoiled nature that frames the territory, providing all the information needed for an unforgettable stay within the Park. At the Visitor Centre it is possible to book guided excursions, snowshoeing, trekking and experiential weekends in nature; on opening days you could consult for free the entire bibliography published by the Park, and purchase the hiking maps of the Park in 1:25,000 scale.
