 Welcome to Guardia Sanframondi - Italy
 
Guardia Sanframondi is a small medieval town in Southern Italy of approximately 5,000 people. The town has all the modern amenities: grocery stores, shops, restaurants, pharmacies, coffee shops and wifi.  At the center of the town is the Castello Medievale which was is now used as a convention center and gathering place for many community sponsored events such as art festivals, open air movie nights and wine festivals. The cobblestone streets and ancient homes of the Centro Storico surround the castello. An increasing number of these homes are available for sale at very reasonable prices due to an aging population and the increased migration of younger people to the bigger urban areas. The town sits high above the Telese Valley, providing spectacular views of the surrounding vineyards and olive orchards that support much of the local economy.

Once every 7 years the town hosts the Septennial Rites celebrating the Assumption, a spectacular manifestation of Penance involving all the community.
In the past few years there has been a wave of visitors coming from all over the world, especially from North America. Guardia Magica is a nonprofit organization established with the goal of helping cultural exchange between citizens of Guardia and the new international residents and visitors. We offer our help to anybody needing it, with a focus on revival of the historical heart of Guardia known as the “Centro storico”, the arts (we love artists!), and practical advice regarding everyday life and how to get here.

Guardia Sanframondi shines brightly over the Telese Valley, about 28km from Benevento and 62 km from Naples. It offers its visitors the peacefulness of a small Sannio village and the closeness to more crowded and well known places. Guardia is not a tourist destination, and enjoys its individuality. Our town has its own cultural vibe deeply rooted in tradition (family, food and wine), and a curiosity for the world outside that welcomes visitors with open arms. There are very few people that speak English here, but people will take the time to communicate with you in whatever language you speak (miming and bad Italian included). If this sounds like a place for you, please come and see us!
