The Trabocchi, defined as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, are wooden constructions anchored on rocks, found only on the Adriatic coast. They were used by local fisherman as a method of catching fish without going out by boat. Today, some have been converted into charming little restaurants on the water.




The Trabocchi coast, named after these ancient fishing systems, is located halfway down the eastern coast of Italy, 250 km across from Rome, in an area still untouched by mass tourism. The coast itself is wonderfully varied, with idyllic sandy beaches giving way to pebbles and even cliffs. The area inland is known as the Green Region thanks to its three national parks, where the brown bear and grey fox are among the protected species. Soft rolling hills lead to two mountains which are home to the source of multiple rivers and spectacular waterfalls, to be seen during the spring melts. The mountains - Gran Sasso and Maiella are hosts to skiing sports in winter and this gives the locals an opportunity to share their pride in the region with winter sports enthusiasts. The Abruzzo is a real jewel of uncontaminated nature!
