On Tuesday morning we headed over to Montifortino, a hill town right on the edge of the Sibillini National Park. The Sibillini's are part of the Appenines, or Italian Alps. I am told that deep in the park is a glacier and that the glacier melt is what is piped to the houses and also sold as bottled water.

We parked below the town gate and hiked up to the top of the town. There was an empty church with this unusual brick treatment.

If you live in town you hang your laundry out from your windows, like this.

As we left Montifortino we drove around the base of the town.
