The region Molise is situated in Southern Italy, between the Apennine mountains and the Adriatic Sea. Molise is divided into 2 provinces, Campobasso and Isernia, and it became a region only in 1970, making it the newest region of Italy. The Molise region is characterized by old traditions, good Italian food, history and art, but the main place of interest of Molise has to be the 'tratturi', the historical paths of seasonal migration of people with their livestock, the ancient tradition of transhumance. National Parks, Nature Reserves and ski resorts are also characteristic for the region of Molise.
Molise is split into two main provinces: Isernia and Campobasso, each visited by tourists every year for the beauty of the scenery, for the museums, the castles and numerous sports activities one can enjoy.
Campobasso is a lovely province, famous for its monuments such as the Castello Manforte. Built on a hill, the castle offers visitors a magnificent view of the city and surroundings. Archaeological relics and burial grounds are also interesting places you can visit, as Campobasso preserved them as best as possible. You can also visit numerous churches, such as the Church of San Bartolomeo or the Church of Sant'Antonio Abate. Museums are what attract a lot of tourists as well. The Museo del Presepe, for instance, houses a collection of recreations from the Bible, with antique items...
