Images from Molise
The establishment of the Molise region is fairly recent, dating from December 1963, when the territory was separated from that of the Abruzzi. Today it consists of two provinces, Campobasso and Isernia. It is bordered to the north by the Adriatic sea and the rivers Trigno and Alto Sangro, to the west by the region of Lazio, to the south by Campania and to the east by the river Fortore from Puglia.
The Apennine mountains characterise both the north west of the territory (the Meta mountains, an extension of the Abruzzi Apennines) and to the south with the Matese mountains which belong to the Apennines of Campania, known in Molise as the Samnite Apennines. The Molise region, or better the area around Isernia, is where relics have been discovered which are the oldest evidence of human life in Europe.
