Local Products and Traditions

The territory of the Nature Reserve is a bridge between the Sabine traditions and the traditions of the Roman countryside. Some of the foodstuffs are produced in small farmsteads situated within the Nature Reserve, some of which are family-run farmsteads. The town celebrations and festivals represent the best occasion to taste the local homemade traditional products that are usually prepared by women, who still preserve ancient recipes handed down from generation to generation. The tastes of the local products are genuine, simple but strong, characteristic of the local rural culture.
