San Vito Chietino

Along the Costa dei trabocchi, between Ortona and Fossacesia, San Vito Chietino dominates the Adriatic Sea. The town, defined by D'Annunzio as "the country of the brooms", rises on a rocky spur and from its balconies you can enjoy a wide panorama that ranges from Majella to Gargano, and than to the Tremiti Islands. The village, perched overlooking the sea, tells its medieval past with the remains of the defensive walls and its beautiful churches. Here, in the place that was D'Annunzio' shelter for long periods, you cannot remain indifferent to the beauty of the Costa dei Trabocchi, between sandy beaches or pebbles guarded by majestic sandstone cliffs, breathtaking views and atmospheres that smell of salt. The coast, particularly indented, is characterized by the Promontorio del Turchino, so called for the crystal clear sea that takes on the intense shades of the sky. This corner is made even more evocative by the presence of the "Trabocco del Turchino". Behind the promontory, between orange groves and brooms, stands Villa Italia, the hermitage dear to D'Annunzio. Here he lived many of his passions and drew inspiration for his work "Il Trionfo delle Morte" (The Triumph of Death), the local cuisine is typically seafood, worth to try the "fish brodetto Sanvitese" and the delicious dishes of pasta seasoned with simple fish sauces. Numerous events of various kinds. On the last weekend of July the feast of the Madonna del Porto takes place with a suggestive procession in the sea on boats adorned with festivities.
