San Marco dei Cavoti

Description

San Marco dei Cavoti is a mountain village in the province of Benevento, located on the Imbiso hills. The historical centre, with its low bare stone and wooden houses, replete with open spaces and tiny cobbled streets, still offers many a quaint corner that take you back to the days of yore, when, between 1353 and 1355, Provençal settlers moved to the territory inhabited by the Samnites, in response to Luigi di Shabra's invitation to repopulate the town, which had been struck by the plague in 1348 and the 1349 earthquake.
The term "Cavoti" comes from the French Gavots and is the appellative of the inhabitants of Gap, the town in Provence where these ancient founders apparently came from. They chose the name "San Marco" in honour of their patron saint.
It is here that the deliciously unique tradition of "torroncino" began at the end of the 17th century. This type of nougat is made from simple ingredients: almonds, hazelnuts, sugar and cocoa, which, when mixed together, bring forth a wondrous concoction.
The air, the scents and the tastes are typical of an untouched environment, where you can spend very relaxing moments.
The Museum of Tower Clocks, opened in 1997, is the only one of its kind in the whole of Europe, and displays hand-wound prototypes, signed and dated, from the 1600s.
