The teatonic coast is also called Costa dei Trabocchi due to its traditional "trabocchi", wooden pile docks for fishing.
Flat sandy and pebbly beaches alternate with rocky cliffs descending into the sea.
Chieti is the fourth largest municipality of Abruzzo.
In the course of history, Chieti underwent the Anjou and later the Aragonese, before under French rule in the early 19th century. The town stands on the hill, which represents the watershed between the Aterno-Pescara and the Alento. The city consists of two nuclei: the historic Chieti Alta (the upper town) and the younger Chieti Scalo with the university campus.
The Cathedral of S. Giustino is the largest and most important church in the provincial capital. The Archeological Museum is located in the town hall, a neoclassical mansion. There is also the Costantino Barbella art museum in the Palazzo Martinelli-Bianchi with its frescos, paintings and ceramics.
Seafood and agricultural products from the hinterland make the teatonic cuisine a rich culinary treasure trove. This is where everyone gets their taste. Most traditional dishes are prepared with local olive oil.
In addition to the truffle and the honey, the jams made from fresh fruit deserve special mention.
Among the pastries you can find "Spaghetti alla chitarra", as in Abruzzo. Meat specialties are the so-called "arrosticini", small lamb spears traditionally prepared in the hinterland, but also increasingly popular on the coast. A special delicacy is the "Turcenelle", braised kid-noodles with peppers and tomato sauce. On many menus you can also find bacon-braised "alla chietina" with ham-rosemary filling.
Among the best known sweets are the famous "Sanguinaccio alla chetina", made from filtered porcine blood, must, cinnamon, chocolate and pine nuts, in addition to the torrone with dried figs.
Among the varieties of cheese the mild provolone and the keen guardiagrele are worth mentioning. Ricotta and sheep's cheese have a long tradition in Abruzzo.
The most famous fish dishes are Alici all'ortonese (anchovies) and Seppie alla sanvitese (squid).
In Lanciano excellent peppers are grown. Traditional sweets made from simple ingredients include pizzas (waffles), tarallucci, cicerchiata and carrots (a typical Easter pastry).
Not to mention the wines of Abruzzo, such as the Montepulciano d'Abruzzo, the Trebbiano and the Cerasuolo d'Abruzzo. Also popular are liqueurs such as the famous Amaro (herbal liqueur).
