In the heart of the ancient Sabina land, at the foot of Mount Acuziano, in an atmosphere of mystical silence, which also surrounds the characteristic village that surrounds it, rises the historic abbey of Farfa, immersed in the charm of a green and smiling nature, in the fresh morning air that breathes around, warmed by a sweet sun whose rays go beyond the branches of the trees, before reaching it.
It is said that from the fortress of Fara Sabina there are ninety-two between villages and villages and that in winter, with the clear air, the gaze goes up to the Gran Sasso. Maybe so. Surely, however, Fara is the most beautiful natural terrace on the Sabina. Located on the first rocky bastion that closes the Tiber valley towards Rieti, its 480 meters allow it to dominate the entire valley towards Rome and, with the help of a pair of binoculars, the profile of the Cupolone, down towards the horizon, is unmistakable.
The Nazzano Tevere-Farfa Nature Reserve covers an area of about 700 hectares within the municipalities of Nazzano (Rm), Torrita Tiberina (Rm) and Montopoli in Sabina (Ri). Its history is inextricably linked to the construction of an artificial dam by the Enel between 1953 and 1955 and the morphology of the Tiber, which in this stretch flows slowly forming wide loops and meanders.
