Our Abruzzo

History and culture

Blue Flag and beyond

A green region and a Blue Flag, the Abruzzo coastline is certainly one of the most beautiful coastal stretches in Italy. Over 130 kilometers of coastline characterized by beautiful landscapes. Silvi Marina, where the Abruzzo Convention Center is located, was counted among the 134 seaside resorts awarded the Green Flag, given by a group of pediatricians that identifies beaches perfect for children and families because of sandy, not-too-deep seabeds, ample space and constant lifeguards. Other stretches of coastline famous for their natural beauty are the Gulf of Vasto, the Gulf of Venus and the Trabocchi Coast, named after the typical fishing machinery used. Of great value are the coastal towers of Abruzzo, nestled in a fairy-tale setting just a few meters from the sea, eternal reminders of their defensive and watch function. One of these, the Cerrano Tower, is at the center of a marine protected area that stretches from Silvi Marina to Pineto, 7 km of charm and history.

Gold, green, blue and white

The colors of the region

Gold, green, blue and white tell the essence of a land and landscape that is as varied as it is precious and highlights how nature is undoubtedly the absolute protagonist and preserves its ancient beauty intact. To explore it, simply plan an inland excursion to the famous Gran Sasso and Majella National Parks, or alternatively to the lesser-known but equally impressive Mount Velino and Lake Campotosto Reserves. Finding a quiet corner will be a breeze, even during the busiest times.

Between Silvi Marina and Pineto

The Cerrano Tower

The spectacular marine area of the Cerrano Tower is located in the Teramo section between two municipalities, Pineto and Silvi Marina; it delimits seven kilometers of coastline and completes a program of environmental protection and enhancement by complementing the network of underwater oases that have enabled the preservation, repopulation and study of the marine ecosystem. The name "Torre del Cerrano" tells of two symbols of the territory's history and identity: the Cerrano stream, which descends from the hills of Atri-a protected area with beautiful gullies-and flows into the marina of Silvi; and the Tower, built in 1568 by the Spanish, a bulwark against Saracen pirates. The fort, which has been completely restored and is home to the Marine Biology Center, overlooks among the dunes, north of the Silvi Marina coastline. Torre del Cerrano has been awarded the European Charter for Sustainable Tourism (CETS), a coveted recognition in addition to the Ministry of the Environment's award for management efficiency, placing it second overall in the ranking of 32 protected areas. To walk in Torre del Cerrano is to get lost in the green, to breathe in the history of the area and its incredible essence. We find a still intact environment with lush fauna and flora to photograph. If you want to discover all the secrets of the area, you can take part in the guided tours that are organized weekly throughout the summer.
Not only nature

Villages, castles and festivals and culinary specialties

The villages of Abruzzo are genuine pearls of beauty. Santo Stefano di Sessanio, Rocca Calascio and Scanno are just a few names. Also numerous are castles (Celano, Pacentro, Anversa degli Abruzzi, Avezzano, Balsorano), hermitages (Santa Croce al Morrone, San Giovanni, San Bartolomeo), shrines (basilica sanctuary of the Holy Face of Manoppello, of San Gabriele dell'Addolorata) convents (convent of the Retreat of the Santissima Annunziata del Poggio, convent of the Madonna del Carmine) and abbeys (San Clemente a Casauria, San Liberatore a Majella, San Giovanni in Venere). Lastly, the festivals deserve a mention, including the prestigious Flaiano Festival dedicated to film, the Jazz Festival and Fuori Uso for those who love contemporary art.
