Abruzzo offers an impressive historical – cultural heritage that deserves to be visited. Thanks to its location and excellent connections from Silvi it ​​is possible to easily reach the main historical and cultural sites of the entire region. Near Silvi Marina there are innumerable restaurants and trattorias where you can taste the flavors of the Abruzzese tradition and wines, the pride of this uncontaminated corner of central Italy. And after sipping a glass of the excellent Montepulciano, you just have to venture out to discover the ancient villages of Abruzzo, first of all Scanno, Santo Stefano di Sessanio and Rocca Calascio. Not to be missed are the castles, such as those of Avezzano, Celano, Balsorano, Anversa degli Abruzzi and Pacentro and the hermitages of San Bartolomeo, San Giovanni and Santa Croce al Morrone. A must for the thousands of tourists who crowd the region in every season of the year, are also the many convents – Madonna del Carmine and Retreat of the Santissima Annunziata del Poggio in particular – and sanctuaries, such as that of San Gabriele dell’Addolorata and of the Holy Face of Manoppello, which are located at the center of these wonderful villages where time seems to have stopped. Finally, there are the abbeys of San Giovanni in Venere, San Liberatore a Majella and San Clemente a Casauria, whose grandeur and beauty are well worth the journey you need to reach them.
