Nanno

Nanno, a small village with 630 inhabitants and part of the new municipality of Ville d’Anaunia, is located between the gorges of the Noce and Tresenga rivers.

Nanno is among the oldest settlements of the Val di Non valley, how archaeological findings confirm.

Above the apple trees which characterise the area, Nanno Castle from the 16th century rises, once summer residence and built by the prince-archbishops of Madruzzo. The castle can be viewed only from outside. Many legends exist about it. One of them tells from the tragic love between Melisenda and Ludovico, children of rival families, who were immured alive by the father of the girl.

Not far away from the castle the little church of St. Fabianus and Sebastian with frescoes from the 15th century is located as well as the San Biagio Square in the village centre which is dominated by the steeple of the parish church.
