Along the valley that surrounds the village flows the Turano, the ancient river Telonio, which rises upstream of Carsoli, gives rise to the homonymous lake and continues its path up to the right bank of the Velino, which flows into the gates of Rieti ; both then became extinct in the Marmore waterfall.
