Ortona is a beautiful town that stands on a cliff overlooking the Adriatic and is best known for its ancient port, which has always been the most important in Abruzzo.

Interesting to see are the Aragonese Castle and the Cathedral.

The Castle and 'placed at the edge of Ortona, in a spectacular location overlooking the sea, has an origin fifteenth (1452) linked to the Aragonese domination in the Abruzzo region.

The majestic Cathedral of St. Thomas, however, stands in the center of the city.

The church, built on the ruins of a pagan temple dedicated to Janus, over the centuries has undergone several destructions and reconstructions.

The temple shows a longitudinal pattern that seems to follow the pattern of the great Apulian basilicas, already imposed itself in the first decades of the thirteenth century.

 the Chapel of St. S. Sacramento with reliefs dell'ortonese Perez and that of St. Thomas, adorned by Tommaso Cascella ceramics, where it is currently preserved reliquary bust of the saint.

In the crypt below the main altar are the relics of the Apostle Thomas, patron of the city, preserved in a gilded copper tape, with the oval portrait of the apostle, by the painter Tommaso Alessandrini Ortona. Between the altar and the throne will the original stone tomb chalcedony bearing the words of St. Thomas in greek.

Every year, on the first Sunday of May, on the occasion of the patron, you can gain the plenary indulgence.

The event is celebrated with a magnificent procession of Renaissance style and delivery of the Archbishop encrypts keys that provides the opening of the same and begins to lose the rites and the exhibition of the Sacred Relics. The interesting Capitular Museum is annexed to the Cathedral

Io e la mia famiglia abbiamo trascorso tutto il mese di agosto in questo appartamento e ci siamo trovati benissimo. La casa è ariosa, luminosa, molto ben arredata e funzionale, con una stupefacente vista totale sul mare.

Si trova inoltre nella città vecchia, un quartiere molto caratteristico e suggestivo.

La proprietaria Rosanna è stata disponibile per venire incontro ad ogni nostra esigenza.

Ritorneremo sicuramente!
