Thousands of tourists gathered in an Italian village to see the impressionist paintings revived in flowering meadows


Many tourists come to the village of Casteluccio, which is located in the commune of Norcia in Central Italy, to see the beautiful sight - flowering meadows. In the fields, blue, red, yellow and white stripes are visible. One of the most beautiful landscapes in the country is created by poppies, cornflowers, bells, daffodils, daisies, mustard and lentils. Flowering in these fields is called Fiortura.

All fields in the valley grow on their own, no one  plants plants on them. The first flowers appear at the end of May, and its peak Fiorurata reaches in July. No one knows for sure when the meadows turn blue, turn red or turn yellow, says Beautiful Umbria .

Thousands of tourists come to see amazing landscapes. Every day they rise to a height of 1.5 km above sea level to capture the views. Natural paths allow them to pass without causing damage to sown fields, reports Il Messagero portal, citing ANSA agency.

“Many tourists who have chosen Casteluccio in recent weeks give us hope for the future and give us strength and courage after four years after the earthquake and the very difficult months that have passed during the emergency due to COVID-19,” emphasizes Mayor Norchi Nikola Alemanno and notes that the influx of people creates an annual problem with parking spaces in the village affected by the earthquake. He hopes that next year a joint decision with the Monti Sibellini National Park will be found.

And local farms are famous for growing delicious lentils. She ripens among wildflowers. Chamomiles, cornflowers and poppies not only decorate the fields, but also support the thin stems of legumes. Lentils have been growing in these places since ancient times, NTD broadcasts .

"These flowers are wild-growing. They were brought here by agricultural machinery, which worked on lentil and wheat fields in another locality. So they have grown a little and bloom next to lentils," local farmer Antonio Barcaroli explained the origin of the amazing fields.
