Cineteatro Massimo

Cineteatro Massimo was one of the first multiscreen cinemas in the city. It has three rooms on three floors. It shows commercial films that follow the tastes of the public. The smallest screen is reserved for art films, which have less commercial success. Ever since the opening, it has hosted the Flaiano Prize which also includes an international cinema show. There is also a small bar here.

Teatro D'Annunzio

Dedicated to the poet from Pescara, this is an open air theater-monument that hosts a theatrical season every summer which includes concerts and ballet. On rainy evenings the shows take place at the cinema-theater Massimo. It is adjacent to the D'Avalos park and faces the sea. Made of cement, it was built in 1956. On the right side is a tall obelisk 65 meters (213 feet) high, made by Vincenzino Michetti and decorated with stylised motifs along its height. The surrounding area is green and fairly large, and if you adventure into the pinewood you will find the roots of liquorice which are a favorite with young people.

Oratorio di Santa Maria delle Grazie

According to legend, this place was built in 1498 on the site of a miraculous apparition. The frescoed portal of the Deposition is from 1505. On the left of the portal, is another Renaissance fresco of the Virgin, Child and two Angels. On the right side are remains of an old building which could have been a cloisters. The bell tower has little windows and finishes in a pyramid shape. The interior has one nave with a cross vault, decorations and ornaments. There is an arch by the apse and the main altar was made in 1642 with a great deal of golden stucco, decorated columns, allegoric statues and a 15th-century triptych. There are also frescoes by the school of Andrea de Litio. The church is found on the road between Alanno and Cugnoli. From Alanno, take the road for Cugnoli and turn left for Torre De Passeri. After 3 kilometers (1.9 miles) you find the church.

Oratorio della Madonna della Croce (Oratory)

Built in the 17th Century to commemorate an apparition of the Madonna, this has a facade with a central, square part covered by stone blocks. Above the neoclassical portal is a square window underlined by a cornice. The upper, central part of the facade finished with an oval, horizontal cornice. The higher sides are sloping. The interior has a nave with two lateral chapels, covered by frescoes. The decorations contain 54 scenes and portraits. This is not far from Pietranico which can be reached by the A25 from Pescara, from the Casauria-Torre de Passeri exit.

La Grotta dei Piccioni

This was discovered by excavators examining a succession of strata at Roman, sub-Appennine and Neolithic levels. The value of this discovery is not only related to the fact that it is over 6500 years old. It is also that the cave was not a hunting shelter like so many other archaeological finds from the same period. This cave was a sanctuary. Studies have found remains of a child sacrificed in some rite, that was probably linked to the fertility of the land. It is near Bolognano, in a rocky landscape with waterfalls and green water from the Valley of Orta.

Chiesa di San Giovanni Battista

Of medieval origin, this church used to be home to nuns. It can be reached by going up a staircase that was rebuilt in the 18th Century. The facade dates from the same period, decorated with Maltese Crosses. The Romanesque, polygonal apse dates from the middle of the14th Century as does the bell tower, which is surrounded by majolica bowls. Near the entrance, in a niche, is the 15th-century statue of a Madonna with Child. Inside, there is a single nave and lateral altars. On the main altar is a painting of San Giovanni Battista (St. John the Baptist) from 1617, by Samberlotti di Montorio.
