Along the Sinello and Trigno Valleys
The Sinello River
The Trigno River
After passing Cupello, which, the tradition says, was founded in the 15th century by a colony of Slavs rejected by the people of Monteodorisio, who built huts in the un-inhabited area where now Cupello rises, we reach Monteodorisio, where we can visit a 13th century church dedicated to St Francis, an ancient tower of the Celestine monastery, in contrada di Sant'Anna outside the little town a pre-Roman chapel, which is evidence of the existence of a Frentani centre in the area (whose name has not reached us). The best view is from the hilltop of the medieval castle. The place takes its name from its count Oderisio Caracciolo, who had a countdom of 17 castles. From the castle on clear days you can see south as far as the Gargano promontory in Apulia and the Tremiti islands.
