Enjoyed sunset on the castle terrace, a lively film festival and related activities, all free of charge. This lovely town offers a wide choice of local crafts and products, can’t be missed if visiting the region.

We went to Specchia by chance during the festival "cinema del reale". We discovered a beautiful village with plenty of art , small, expositions and mediaeval architecture.

Wonderful churches, palazzi and the castle. An amazing baroque town - a miniature Florence. Great restaurants and ice creams too. A lovely park.
