Teramo
Teramo

Located 20 km from the Adriatic and close to the rocks of the Gran Sasso d'Italia (2912 m), Teramo, between the rivers Vezzosa and Tordino, is the capital of the province that occupies the northernmost territory of the Abruzzo region. The discovery of funerary furnishings, similar to those of the protohistoric tombs in Piceno, attest that the city was undoubtedly a pre-Roman settlement.

Lanciano

Lanciano is, after the Provincial County Seats, one of the most important municipalities of the province of Chieti. The town is above all a cradle of art for the presence of numerous monuments, starting from the sanctuary of the Eucharistic Miracle which preserves the testimony of the oldest Eucharistic miracle of the Catholic world. Around the year 700, in the ancient church of San Legonziano, a Basilian monk expressed doubts about the real presence of Christ in the Eucharist. During Mass, the consecrated host and wine really turned into flesh and blood. The relics are kept in a monstrance

L'Aquila

The city of L'Aquila is located in the center of the homonymous basin closed on one side by the Gran Sasso and by Velino Sirente on the other. This basin is crossed by the river Aterno. The city was born from the will of a group of feudal lords who asked Pope Gregory IX for the concession to found a city on the hill that stretched between Amiternum and Forcona. The numerous castles scattered on the slopes surrounding the new city, gradually built houses, churches, fountains and squares, creating the first nucleus of L'Aquila, whose name derives from the numerous water springs that were born

Roccascalegna
Roccascalegna

It looks like an invented place, Roccascalegna, a castle narrated in some fairy tale, or ancient novel. Instead, this beautiful castle really exists, and it is so beautiful that it was chosen as the location for the film "The Tale of Tales" by Matteo Garrone. Set on a rocky spur, it dominates the medieval village, the valley of the Rio Secco and the wide valley of the Sangro, like an ancient guardian, imposing and taciturn. To visit it means to immerse oneself in the fascination of the ancient Middle Ages, to lose oneself in observing the vestibule with its herringbone bricks, the sentinel

San Vincenzo Valle Roveto
San Vincenzo Valle Roveto

Next to the river Liri, along the Valle Roveto, immersed in a natural paradise full of woods, streams and green fields, stands San Vincenzo Valle Roveto, a town that includes eight villages, including the authentic village of San Vincenzo Vecchio and other ancient nuclei of great historical interest, such as Morrea, San Giovanni Vecchio and Roccavivi. The panorama, which is presented to tourists who frequent the village of San Vincenzo Valle Roveto, is a silent landscape, characterized by the presence of extensive olive groves that give a note of color and charm to an already enchanting set

Sante Marie
Sante Marie

Sante Marie is a small village, set in a territory of great beauty and cultural, artistic and gastronomic richness. Surrounded by chestnut woods and a generous land, this village can count on its cuisine based on high quality ingredients, in particular mushrooms and truffles, gifts from the woods. In the village, however, two are the most interesting places from the cultural point of view, unexpected places and for this even more precious. The first is the brigandage museum exhibition, which illustrates the phenomenon that characterized the area's past with documents, photos, letters and pe

Scurcola Marsicana
Scurcola Marsicana

On the slopes of Mount San Nicola stands Scurcola Marsicana, a village that welcomes the traveler with the beauty of its landscapes, with its ancient rites and above all with the genuine hospitality of its people. If a mountainous panorama of enchanting beauty stretches around the village, you should not miss: the Orsini Castle, which tells the medieval past;

Pereto
Pereto

Pereto observes the valley below from the rock spur on which it stands, like an ancient guardian who controls his kingdom. All around, the rocks are the element that dominates the territory, alternating with green woods of oak and beech trees, which soften the landscape. Its territory has always been an area of passage and border, so much so that it deserves the name of "Porta d'Abruzzo". The ancient village is dominated by the building which is its symbol and history: the medieval castle, built as we see it today by Frederick II of Swabia. With its keep, the watchtowers and entrance doors

Pescina
Pescina

Between the National Park of Abruzzo, Lazio and Molise, and the Sirente-Velino Regional Park, in an evocative and almost uncontaminated nature, stands Pescina, an ancient village that tells, with the urbanism and the architecture of its historical center, the medieval influences still visible. If the remains of the ancient Cyclopean walls tell of prehistoric settlements, the most recent history is enclosed in a symbol: the Tower that dominates the center and that rises from the remains of the old castle of "Rocca Vecchia" which belonged to the Piccolomini family. But there is also another t

Roccacasale

The country, although with a recent expansion downstream, has remained over time substantially steeped on the rocky slopes of Mount Morrone west and has retained its characteristic as a lookout of the Conca Peligna. In fact, its position allows an almost total view over the whole valley below and the walls of the ancient castle that rose majestically to guard the north side of the Conca Peligna are still visible. The pre-Roman fortification of Colle delle Fate, an archaeological site of great importance, and numerous other finds in the territory, among which substantial remains of Roman wal
