Città Sant’Angelo - Pescara Province
Città Sant’Angelo is one of the most sought after towns, in which to buy a property, due to its fabulous views and proximity to the coast. The town has even been awarded the prestigious title of ‘One of the most beautiful medieval villages of Italy’. It is located on a hilltop, surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, and has incredible views over the plains of Pescara to both the Gran Sasso mountains and the Adriatic coast. Its history can be traced back more than two thousand years and strolling around the narrow streets to discover its beautiful buildings, ancient churches, terracotta rooftops and panoramas is a must!
The town has many restaurants and bars. Its cuisine is influenced by the traditions of both Teramo and inland Pescara which includes the famous lamb kebab dish called ‘arrosticini’ – such a favourite of the area.
Amenities include an ATM, pharmacy and post office. There is an atmospheric market, each Wednesday, selling local produce such as fruit, vegetables, cheese, fish, bread and meat. So much to tempt the taste buds.
