Chieti

Cities and Towns in Abruzzo and Molise

Situated on a high plain just fifteen kilometers from the Adriatic sea, Chieti rests on land located between the Alento torrent and the Pescara Valley, from where it enjoys magnificent panoramic views stretching from the Gran Sasso to the Maiella and as far as the hills which lead towards the sea.

The Province of Chieti is mostly a hilly and mountainous area between the Adriatic sea to the east and the Maiella chain to the north-west. It is extensively cultivated with olive trees and vineyards, and produces celebrated wines and extravirgine olive oil. The province of Chieti was called "Citeriore" since it was situated to the right of the Pescara river and was in Latin "citra" (=this side) with reference to Naples, the capital of the Kingdom. The Pescara river separated it from the province of Teramo, the Apennine Mountains from the province of L'Aquila, the right shore of the Sangro and the Valicella of the Varrino from Molise. The territory includes mountainous features, the group of the Maiella, and 72 km of steep and rocky coast, along the Adriatic sea.

Chieti is home to a great number of important works of architecture such as the gothic portals of the Churches of S. Antonio Abate, S. Chiara, S. Francesco al Corso and S. Domenico. Among the non-religious buildings of note, there are numerous fine palazzi such as Palazzo Marinetti-Bianchi, the Collegio degli Scolopi, and Palazzo Majo.

Chieti conserves a number of important historical archives including those of the county council, the state and the archbishopric. The town boasts three museums of certain interest; the National Archaeological Museum, The Museum of Civitella and the C. Barbella Art Museum.
