Via Valle Roveto
This place is full of fishermen. There are also large goods boats, and in summer there are some tourist boats that lead to Tremiti or go to Croatia. On the left, from Via Valle Roveto to Lungaterno Nord, the river is seen as a historic site. It was the port of the Vestini and the Marrucini and then, under Rome, it was an important commercial bridge that led to Illyrian lands. In the sixteenth century, it was an important, strategic, geographical point that made it necessary to build a fortress. This had seven bastions and was attacked many times by the Saracens. This was destroyed in 1866, but the Bagno Barbonico can still be seen, or the prisons built behind the fortress, where many political prisoners from the Risorgimento were kept in atrocious conditions. Continuing along Via Paolucci, there is a fishing market, a museum and then you can continue along the water or go down to the beach.
