L'Aquila is a city that will surprise you, passed through wars and earthquakes – the last one in 2009 – but firmly standing in its foundations and with the desire not to be overwhelmed by an ungenerous nature. This also reminds us of the words that for centuries has been appearing in its crest, Immota Manet: “still it stands”.
It was born in the 13th century and the first construction of its most famous monument, the Fountain of 99 spouts, dates back to the same time: the legend is that the 99 spouts represent the traditional 99 castles that gave birth to the new centre. In 1294 the fame of L’Aquila increased for an extraordinary event: the crowning of pope Celestino V in the basilica of St. Mary of Collemaggio that he himself made build and where his remains are preserved, still today among the greatest masterpieces of roman-gothic architecture. But L'Aquila is also a city of craftsmanship and gastronomy, where you can taste the best saffron of Italy!
