About this location
The Abruzzo region
ABRUZZO - Abruzzo holds a record: 30 per cent of its territory is protected by environmental legislation. No other region in Europe can boast as much. Not without good reason is it known as "the region of parks". Three national parks, a regional park and many protected sites and nature reserves. In a region like this, it seems natural that the regional capital is called L'Aquila ('The Eagle').
On the coast of Abruzzo (which vaunts popular bathing areas) one of the most popular locations is Pescara, birthplace of Gabriele D'Annunzio. Absolutely interesting to visit is the Trabocchi coast, with its monumental wooden constructions on the blue water and the former train line path, passing just close to the coast. This path starts from Ortona, a beatiful city on the coastline, famous for the II WW museum and the relics of St. Thomas the Apostole.
Lanciano, very close to Ortona is also an ancient city, famous for the Eucharistic Miracle and its beatiful architecture.
Each single city or village hides historical spots in the region: Abruzzo is surprisingly rich in architectural and artistic treasures, almost as much as it is full of natural treasures and folk traditions (such as the "festival of the serpents" in Cocullo, which brings thousands of people to this tiny village on the first Sunday of May).
Absolutely to take part during summer time to "sagra", events dedicated to local food almost every night in august and spread in many towns of Abruzzo region. There you can find good wine, folk music and local people dancing tradizional music.
If you prefer nightlife, Pescara (or Silvi Marina) are the most recommended, for their cultural life and young oriented clubs.
TRABOCCHI COAST: Large, odd creatures jut out into the sea along the Trabocchi Coast. They are bizarre wooden insects, with long, swaying antennae reaching for the water. If you are there at the right time of the day, you might see men maneuvering them: the 'traboccanti' of Abruzzo and Apulia, the keepers of an ancient fishing technique. 'Trabocchi' are fishing machines that punctuate the coastline in the provinces of Chieti, Campobasso, Foggia and the northern area of Bari.
Built with large logs of pine of Aleppo – and other elastic materials that can resist the north-western wind that Italians call 'Maestrale' –, they have been anchored to the coast, whether rocky or sandy, for centuries. They are slender structures made of boards and beams, sitting on rudimentary pillars that dig into the bottom of the sea or into the rock, and connect to the shore with spindly peers. From the platforms and daises, fishermen use long arms called 'antenne' and winches to lower large, fine-knit fishnets into the water, following an “on sight” fishing technique that allows them to intercept the flows of fish moving around these waters of the Adriatic. Small, fragile fortresses that watch over the sea, trabocchi constantly change: unable to resist the elements for long, they are incessantly subject to restoration and structural alterations.
They have transformed, once might say, every time the wind blew and time passed.
THE ROUTE OF ST. THOMAS FROM LANCIANO TO ORTONA: If the season and the weather are good, our advice is that you cover on foot the section that from Lanciano leads to Ortona (Google Map): 26 km, about 6 hours journey, so it will take about one day of walking. Lanciano is the town of the first Eucharistic miracle in Christian history.
The Miracle, which every year brings to the twon thousands of pilgrims, drawn by the mystery and by their deep faith, took place in the 8th century while a priest was celebrating the Mass: at the moment of consacration, the Sacramental bread and wine turned into flesh and blood. The relics, five clots of blood and a very thin membrane of circular flesh, are preserved in a monstrance located in the church of Saint Francis, that can still be visited. We suggest that you take this occasion to visit the town. From Piazza Plebiscito and Piazza Garibaldi in Lanciano, follow the wood signs of the Route of the Route of Saint Thomas, and descend towards C. da Sabbioni. After 7 km, along paved but little frequented streets, you will arrive to the municipality of Frisa in the countryside. After going up the valley of the Moro river, about 12 km from there, you will come to Villa Rogatti, and by walking on “il tratturello” (a street for cattle moving between pastures) among the vineyards of Villa Caldari, the way continues towards Villa Iubatti and La Galiarda. The Route, in the plains, enters the town of Ortona and reaches the characteristic historical center. Ortona is the final destination of the Route because it is the town that proudly enshrines the Sacred remains of Saint Thomas the Apostle, and whose ancient history has been recently reconstructed with competence and historical truthfulness. The arrival of the relics in 1258 was highly important for the town, and this is attested by the two plenary indulgences conceded in 1398 by Pope Boniface IX and in 1479 by Pope Sixtus IV. The feast of Forgiveness livening up the town on the first Sunday of May is linked to the indulgence; the discovery of the territory therefore can be connected to this spiritual itinerary and to the scheduled events in town. Besides, in Ortona do not miss a visit to the Aragonese Castle, the fortress overlooking the sea.
With the Route of Saint Thomas, the journey at the discovery of the territory becomes a unique and irrepetible experience in which nature, spirituality and faith encourage a personal path of reflection and meditation.
