Tourists visiting Abruzzo might get the impression they're in a open-air-museum that never closes, offering various exhibits: ecology, geology and geomorphology, ancient urban history, the history of its agriculture and landscapes, religious architecture, monastic settlements and animal husbandry.
The uniqueness lies in the bond forged over time between the locals and the history of the region's settlements, from castles to churches of all kinds. A symbiosis that allows the visitor to immerse themselves in a spontaneous architecture shaped by nature and artificial architectural techniques. An artistic heritage that has remained virtually untouched and unspoiled.
With its many villages, the Abruzzo region comes second in the association of Italian municipalities' ranking of "most beautiful villages in Italy".
