I liked it very much because it gives me the sense of a Christmas village!

Mi è piaciuto molto perchè mi dà la sensazione e l’atmosfera di un paesaggio natalizio!

Vi suggerisco di usare questa ♪♫♪♫ musica ♪♫♪♫ come sottofondo.

Sant’Agata dè Goti (map) è inserita a pieno titolo tra le mete del turismo culturale Italiano. Antica città della provincia di Benevento, posizionata su una terrazza tufacea tra due affluenti del fiume Isclero, Sant’Agata dei Goti è situata nella splendida valle del Beneventano e offre un ricco patrimonio storico artistico da visitare, oltre a prodotti enogastronomici tipici della zona. Il nome attuale, Sant’Agata dè Goti, risale al sec. VI d.C., quando i Goti, sconfitti nel 553 d.C. nella battaglia del Vesuvio, ottennero di rimanere nelle loro fortezze come sudditi dell’impero: una colonia di Goti si stabilì qui.

Sant’Agata de’ Goti is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Benevento in the Italian region Campania, located about 35 km northeast of Naples and about 25 km west of Benevento near the Monte Taburno.

The name does not derive from the Gothic domination of Italy (5th-6th centuries), but from the Gascony family De Goth who held it in the 14th century.

Sant’Agata is not far from the ancient Samnite town of Saticula.
