"Barrea - The Pearl of the Abruzzo National Park" Barrea by sandysmith

Barrea Travel Guide: 16 reviews and 21 photos

Barrea is situated at the 'south gate' of the lake which was created by the damming of the Sangro.
A place to go and admire the view and hope one day the rustic village willl be restored and inhabited again.

    Sandy...truly beautiful photgraphs, and, yes, the reflection photo is my favorite, but the one from the bar is pretty great too. Lovely little village with lots of charm. Great work.

    Beautiful photos Sandy!!! Wow, that lake looks so different, hahaha, but it is the same! Great to see this page! I wish I had had more time on my trip to visit the area! But that's maybe a good excuse to go back some day :-)))

    If there's a reflection to be found, leave it to Sandy to "digger" it up. ;)

    Fantastic page with a set of stunning pictures! I love such little cobbled streets with very picturesque stone houses! And amazing landscapes around! Keep up the best job on VT, please!
