the village is very nice. It is a jump in the past. Very narrow streets. One of the nicest village in the area.

Enjoyed sunset on the castle terrace, a lively film festival and related activities, all free of charge. This lovely town offers a wide choice of local crafts and products, can’t be missed if visiting the region.

Very nice small town, it gives you such a nice, romantic feeling when walking through this little architectural gem by night. Definitely worth a visit.

Quiet clean and has also some architectural sites. Walking through the silent town gives you a taste back to medieval time.

We went to Specchia by chance during the festival "cinema del reale". We discovered a beautiful village with plenty of art , small, expositions and mediaeval architecture.

Wonderful churches, palazzi and the castle. An amazing baroque town - a miniature Florence. Great restaurants and ice creams too. A lovely park.
