TUFILLO overlooks on a rocky spur one of the wildest land strip of the Trigno River valley. The village developed during the 12th-13th centuries and still preserves many original elements in the houses-walls and houses-towers ruins. According to a legend, the ancient village was situated on the Mount Farano and an invasion of huge ants forced the inhabitants to leave their houses and re-build them further down. In fact, on the Mount Farano the ruins of an ancient settlement rose around a 3rd-2nd century shrine really exist, and they have been investigated by archeologists during the last years. Among the finds, a bronze key with an Oscan inscription dedicated to the Goddess Herentas, an italic divinity comparable to the Greek Aphrodite, stands out. The archaeological excavations can be admired in a permanent exhibition entitled "Cercando Herentas", hosted in the "Casa di Herentas". This is the highest part of the village, where also the Church of Santa Giusta is situated, built in 1758 and connected to the marquis Bassano Palace through a corridor, since it has been adopted by the nobles as a palatine chapel. On the 11th of August the "cavatelli" Festival takes place. This is a typical dish of Tufillo, a kind of handmade pasta seasoned with a local sausage sauce.Show More
