The forest of Torino di Sangro
Categories of Articles
After about half an hour you will reach the bottom of a hill, and with a gentle ascent you'll find yourself at the top, to enjoy a rewarding view on the Adriatic, the town of Fossacesia, the Valley of the Sangro river and the abbey of San Giovanni in Venere. You can then also walk down through the dunes to the shore.
Back on the Adriatic State Road, a very few km away northwards rises the Abbey of San Giovanni in Venere, and from there the road proceeds along the "costa dei trabocchi", those peculiar wooden constructions used by the fishermen of the area, among them near San Vito, the celebrated Trabocco described by Gabriele D'Annunzio in his works, and the house where he lived in isolation to write the Trionfo della Morte.
