Molise is an Italian mountainous region with a stretch of coast overlooking the Adriatic Sea. It includes a part of the Abruzzo National Park in the Apennine mountain range, with a rich wildlife and trails. Its capital, Campobasso, is known for the Monforte Castle, located on a mountain, and for the Romanesque churches. To the north is the archaeological area of Pietrabbondante with an ancient theater and a Samnite temple.
Oasis of tranquillity, Molise is a region rich in history and natural beauty, with mountain and pastoral traditions, parties and rites of very ancient origin. There are many protected areas, which enhance and protect the Molise flora, such as the National Park of Abruzzo, Lazio and Molise, the Bosco Casale Oasis and the Guardiaregia-Campochiaro Natural Oasis. Molise is an uncontaminated land, and perhaps not entirely known, but an ideal destination for cultural, naturalistic and food and wine tourism. A land inhabited by a hospitable people who knew how to treasure and enhance a unique territory.
Of a great importance are the WWF Oasis (Monte Mutria and Guardiaregia-Campochiaro), the Lipu Oasis of Casacalenda, the “Le Mortine” Oasis in the Volturno river basin, near Venafro, the Matese massif, the Collemeluccio reserve, with its extensions of white fir woods, and Capracotta Botanical Garden.
The provinces of Molise are: Campobasso (capital) and Isernia.
