Small ancient Town on a hill top. Beautiful old stone houses and little streets. Panoramic view from top of the hill. Town is mainly abandoned apart from a few houses and 1 restaurant, no shops or cafés.

Wonderful to go back in time and see Marche how it was more than hundred years ago. We came in the rain but the view was still amazing. Could imagine it would be nice to come for a picnic on a sunny day.

Journey back in time in this wonderful village perched high at the top of a rocky spur. The village has remained like 100 years ago.

The joy of Elcito is that when you're up there you feel, and are, removed from this world, and able to see it and think about it from a distance. So it's best to go when as little as possible of this world is going...More
