Via Scoop.itLe Marche another Italy

This is countryside imbued with mystery. Sanctuaries and churches are scattered in remote valleys. Locals pick wild herbs to make medicines and scent their cooking. Monte Sibilla (a mountain) was once home, according to legend, to a witch or ’sybil’, giving rise to the name Sibillini. Menacing place names abound, such as Gole dell’Infernaccio (mouth of hell) and Passo Cattivo (bad pass). The area is famous throughout Italy for its legends, and even the park symbol depicts the mountains with eyes.
