CHIETI – THE CITY THAT CARRIES THE LEGACY OF ACHILLES

Chieti is a city as well as commune located in the Southern part of Italy, 200 kilometers east by northeast of Capital Rome. The city is the capital of Chieti province, which is also called the Teatine Province and is located in the Abruzzo region. The city lies on a stretch of crest that runs along the Pescara River just a handful of kilometers away from the Adriatic Sea, overlooking picturesque Maiella and Gran Sasso mountains in the backdrop.

The region around the city is largely hilly as well as mountainous, with the presence of a number of parallel valleys running alongside the rivers and the creeks. While the northern outskirts are rough and are practically a desolate landscape, the southern fringes are comparatively tamer and are dotted with an array of tiny hamlets. The most notable among them are located in the Pescara and the Sangro areas. The city of Chieti is one of the most ancient in Italy, and dates back to 1181 BC, when it was founded by the Greek Hero Achilles.

Apart from the scenic beauties, there are a number of medieval and ancient tourist sites in and around the city of Chieti. The most famous of them is the Gothic Cathedral, which is famous for its numerous frescoes and the bell tower that was renovated and enlarged in the 14th Century. Other historical places of tourist interest include the Sacro Monte dei Morti Oratory, the San San Francesco al Corso Church, which was founded in the year 1239, with a façade that contains an unfinished Baroque style. Then there is the Santa Chiara Church, the National Archeological Museum of Abruzzo in Chieti, which is famous for the unforgettable statue of Capestrano, the famous Roman warrior, SS. Pietro e Paolo Church, and the remains of large ancient reservoirs and a theatre.

The city is also home to some of the world’s most beautiful museums like Villa Frigeri or the National Archaeological Museum of the Abruzzi. The museum houses pre-Roman Abruzzo Burial cults, a variety of Italic sculptures, The Capestrano Warrior and the Pansa collection, the famous Sanctuary of Hercules Curinus at Sulmona, a wide range of Numismatic collection, and the likes. Other museums include Costantino Barbella or the Art Museum, Biomedical Science Museum of Paleopathology and Bioarchaeology, La Civitella or the Archaeological Museum, the Diocesan Theatine Museum, another art museum called Palazzo de Mayo.

The city is also a notable center of education, with the University of Chieti or Università G. d'Annunzio - Chieti e Pescara, as it is locally called, being host to 35,000 students. The university teaches various facets of architecture, Philosophy, Arts, various foreign languages, Economics, literatures from around the world, science and technology, Psychology, Sports Medicine, Social Sciences, Medicine and Pharmacy and other disciplines.

The city is well connected by bus, train and flights from various parts of Italy and hence, it does not take too much of an effort to reach the city from any part of Italy or the rest of Europe and spend some days in ancient tranquility.
