Roccastrada has no grand monuments, but is famous for its religious art.

The city blossomed from medieval village to bustling hub for the miners who worked in the copper and silver mines.

It’s a great spot to stop and stretch your legs before continuing your journey through the Metalliferous Hills.

While you’re admiring mountain views and peaceful lifestyle, visit the Chiesa della Madonna delle Grazie on Via del Convento to see some beautiful 16th century frescoes.
