CARAMANICO TERME - PESCARA PROVINCE
Caramanico is located in the Majella National Park and is home to the best-known thermal spa in Abruzzo. Located at 650 metres above sea level, its origins date back to the Early Middle Ages when it was built as a military settlement. Later in Carimanico's history it began to focus on the presence of its healing waters and it became officially known as Carimanico Terme in 1960. The spas are renowned for their high sulphur content and have been treating people for a range of ailments over the past 400 years.
It is the largest town in the area and has a thriving community. During the summer months there are all kinds of events, such as concerts, open-air music and cinema. The shops are even open on a Sunday, which is very rare in Abruzzo!
Nature too is important and the Majella National Park contains about 500 kilometres of hiking trails through the mountains. There are cave paintings in Grotta Sant'Angelo and Grotta del Cavallone, the latter being one of the deepest caves in Europe, open to the public. Guided excursions to the nearby Orfento Reserve, National Park of Majella and the Lama Bianca Reserve are also organised.
