Sulmona’s historic centre is full of interesting little architectural details. 

Follow our walking quiz and see how many you can spot!  Suitable for all members of the family. Start at the Duomo (the Cathedral of San Panfilo) at the Northern end of the ‘Villa Comunale’ (the city gardens) and follow a straight line through the park right up to Piazza Garibaldi. Along the way you will spot 9 different architectural details in the various ‘angoli nascosti’ and for each one there is a different question to answer.

This works best if you can access this page on your smartphone and refer to each visual in turn.

The answers are available as a separate download here. You can print it off and take it with you or, if you are inclined to cheat, wait until later.

Have fun!
