Armea Valley

Known by ethnomusicologists around the world for the ancient chants which are sung during Holy Week, Ceriana is the village of religious Brotherhoods, who re-evoke this ritual of religious devotion every year, which falls somewhere between the sacred and the profane.

The spiritual atmosphere dominates the narrow alleyways of this delightful village of medieval buildings and Roman origins, established at the top of a hill from which the god Apollo was worshipped. And if the cultural scene is more than alive, the village’s traditional cuisine is no different.
