The town is actually a fortress that leans against the sky balancing itself on the steep hill where it rests. This fortress was built during the reign of Naples to delimit its territory. The town’s main monument is the Spanish fortress. You have to be in good shape to get up to the town because of the steep incline, but once you manage it, you will be rewarded with the beautiful panorama that it has to offer. The town overlooks the Adriatic Sea and the “Gran Sasso” mountain. Not to be forgotten are the historical museum and all the small up and down hill roads of the town that are very pleasant.
