Noi, per seguirne il ritmo, dobbiamo fare attenzione ai nostri passi.

Forest Museum

Located inside the warehouse once used for beech wood carving, the museum gives information on Val Fondillo, its history and its importance for Opi’s economy.



Val Fondillo boasts of prehistoric, pre-Roman and Roman presences, whose evidences were found in excavations carried out in the last decade.

The richness and fertility of the forest allowed for abundant harvesting of firewood and timber, used both for house heating and for producing furniture and railway material.

The valley has been for centuries the realm of lumberjacks and muleteers who, braving the steep slopes, have provided wood for the warehouse, the latter initially a private property and then (in the 60’s) run by an Opi’s cooperative  at that time the most important enterprise of the valley.

The museum is open during the months of July and August and on weekends, with hours 9.00-18.00.

Entrance ticket:

Individual: 2 €.

Groups of more than 5 persons: 12 €.

Children up to 10 years old: free

Museum of chamois 

Housed in a typical building in the historic center of Opi, the Museum of the Chamois allows to have a close meeting with this agile inhabitant of the park’s cliffs.



Inside the museum, besides admiring the structure of a typical house belonged to one of the village’s few wealthy families, it is possible to get information about characteristics, eating habits, and behaviours of the Abruzzo’s chamois (rupricapra rupricapra ornata).

The children section of the museum offers games designed to learn recognising the different animal species of the park.

Finally, a visit to the close observation point overlooking a wildlife area allows the most lucky ones to see live the small herd of chamois that was recently reintroduced in the area.

Admission to the museum and to the observation point is free of charge.

Museum hours: 9.00-13.00; 15.30-19.30. Open daily from 15 June to 15 September, on weekends and public holidays in the rest of the year.
