The history of La Locanda del Ruspante

Rough-hewn stone, worked by hand, is the predominant feature of the skilfully restored country house. Stone as an original building material, the most natural available to man, stone which tells the stories of past lifetimes and which bears the marks of bombings from the Second World War, still visible on the façade. The heavy wooden beams holding up the ceilings likewise have the look of a house in which Garibaldi might have lived during the time of the Italian unification. So many legendary tales which are still told to date, linking the area to our national hero’s journey through this countryside, not to mention the stories of brigands who roamed through this wooded, mountainous area situated between the Papal State and the Kingdom of Naples.
