Love Abruzzo: The fascination of folkloric traditions and unique wild fauna

 

Abruzzo is a mystery, as it is neither part of the fashion-conscious, Ferrari-producing north nor the siesta-loving, anarchic south.



Despite its proximity to Rome and a long history of tribalism and pre-Roman civilisation, it ranks low in terms of tourist appeal among Italian areas.



Regardless, this rough alpine territory, racked by earthquakes regularly, remains pleasantly unique.


Abruzzo is considered a region of Southern Italy in terms of its culture, language, history, and economy, though in terms of physical geography it may also be considered part of Central Italy.



Here you’ll find more protected area than anyplace else in Italy, as well as some of the continent’s last remaining major wild wildlife and a patchwork of distinctive towns and villages with folkloric traditions dating back to the Italic tribes who created them.



The famous Warrior of Capestrano statue was discovered in a necropolis in the 6th century B.C. and is now housed in the Museo Archeologico Nazionale d’Abruzzo in Chieti.



Among the region’s notable cultural and historical structures are:
The Castello della Monica, the Collurania-Teramo Observatory, the famous L’Aquila Basilica of Santa Maria di Collemaggio (which houses the remains of Pope Celestine V), the Museo Nazionale d’Abruzzo, Santa Maria del Suffragio, the Forte Spagnolo, the Fountain of 99 Spouts, Gabriele D’Annunzio’s house in Pescara, the Scala Sancta and its church in Campli, the church of Santissima Annunziata in Sulmona, the cathedrals of Chieti, Lanciano, Guardiagrele, Atri, and Pescara, as well as the castles of Ortona, Celano, and Ortucchio.



The cuisine of Abruzzo is known for its diversity and richness. Abruzzo’s cuisine is influenced by both its agricultural and coastal regions. Much of Abruzzo was very isolated until the twentieth century due to the mountains. This has aided in the preservation of local culinary traditions.
