The Abruzzo region

Abbruzo regions 4 provinces are LAquila, Pescara, Chieti and Teramo. Most of the towns in the Abruzzo region build a tangible bridge between tradition and modern-day life. All the towns are a paradise for second homes and Abruzzo property seekers.

There is no shortage of beautiful properties or houses for sale in Abruzzo. Waves of Artistic and architectural movements over centuries speak to all tastes from rustic to refined. Yet all the convenience associated with modern living are also present in the houses and villas in Abruzzo.

Whether you are interested in culture of just want to enjoy the shops and atmosphere, theres something here for everyone.

To purchase your Italian property in the four provinces, we use our time, energy and expertise. Whether your requirements are for relaxation, retirement or investment our unique property search consultancy allows you to relax, and us to take the strain out of the Italian property acquisition.

The towns do not have the same sprawling dimensions as other regions.

The large number of public squares are used as a meeting place for old and young especially during the summer months and form the human dimension of the towns architecture.

Maintaining a cultural identity and a low population density (1.25 million residents in the entire region) have given the Abruzzo region Italys lowest crime rates.

The Mafia has been unable to establish itself here. The standard of living is high. Foreign tourists are still a rarity in the towns.

In contrast to the well known metropolises of the Bel Paese, in which the overriding languages are German, English and Japanese, the Abruzzo region is still a paradise for Italian authenticity.

Sulmona

The tradition is that it was founded 1000 years BC by Solimo, a friend of Aeneas, fleeing from the city of Troy. The town was called Sulmo in Roman times and is mentioned by historians on many occasions, as when in 211 BC it was sacked by Hannibal.

Situated in the heart of the Pelignia Valley, Sulmona lies impressively surrounded by a mountain landscape which sets off its beautiful old town centre buildings.

It is the biggest and most important town of this valley and its most flourishing phase dates back to Roman times when it was a Pelignian municipium along with Corfinium and Superaequum, and to the Renaissance, a time of thriving trade and high quality craft production.

A determining factor was its geographical position, at a junction of the Via Claudia Valeria and the Celano-Foggia “tratturo” (a regulated system of wide grassy thoroughfares) connected with important communication routes between Marsian territory in one direction and the Naples area in the other; the Via degli Abruzzi, the commercial and cultural thoroughfare between Florence and Naples, passed through Sulmona.

It was the early shepherd communities, who had settled in pre-Roman times on the surrounding hills, who were initially responsible for the development of the town; there are remains of fortified walls on Colle Mitra. The great latin poet Publius Ovedius Naso was a citizen of Sulmona where he was born in 43 BC.

Around Sulmona at the foot of Mt Morrone are the sizeable terraces of the sanctuary of Ercole Curino, the most impressive Italic place of worship in the entire region. There are remains from the 1st century BC, but the sanctuary is probably much older. Some Roman ruins are visible below the Annunziata complex.

The Cathedral was founded prior to 1000 AD and restored between 1078 and 1119, then again in both 1238 and 1461. The 14th-century Porta Napoli, the aaqueduct (1256) and the (substantially changed) churches of S. Maria della Tomba and S. Francesco della Scarpa along with the Cathedral, all retain a medieval appearance.

The imposing Badia Morronese (abbey), from the 13th century, was used as a dungeon for a long time. A path leads up to the hermitage of S. Onofrio, where St. Peter Celestine spent some time. It conserves some frescoes painted in the 13th and 14th centuries.

The façade of the magnificent complex of buildings including the church and the Palazzo dell’Annunziata is one of the finest examples of the Renaissance in Abruzzo. Today the town is an important agricultural and commercial centre and is deservedly famous in the world over for its confetti (sugar almond candies) and for its goldsmiths.
