PENNE

In the province of Pescara, Abruzzi, it is one of the major centres of the Vestina Area half-way between the Adriatic Sea and the Gran Sasso d’Italia. It is the natural gateway to the National Park of Gran Sasso and Monti della Laga through the “Lago di Penne” Nature Reserve. Because of bricks in all the buildings and in the remnants of some floors Penne has earned the name of the “City of bricks”.
