    San Vito Chietino












San Vito Chietino has about 5,200 inhabitants. It was defined as "the town of the ginestas" by the poet Gabriele D'Annunzio and rises on a cape stretched out to the sea that overhangs the blue Adriatic Sea. Blooming orange trees and olive trees grow among the beauties of the hill framing the characteristic little white houses and gardens. The history of this town is very old.


The ancient port called Gualdo was placed on the mouth of the Feltrino River, below the San Vito castle. It represented an important port of call in the Frentana period. This port has fallen in decadence after the Roman domination and another one was built. This put San Vito in competition with the neighbouring town, Ortona, for the control of the maritime commercial activities. Around the year 1000, the Church of San Vito in portulo was built on the hills over the port.

Walking down the town, one can admire the beautiful buildings that appear on the main street with its many shops and cafes, the Church of "San Vito Martyr", protector of the town, built in the beginnings of the 19th century which houses a beautiful baptismal font, the Church of "San Francesco da Paola", where a golden wooden bust is preserved.

At the end of the main street, there is the Marconi panoramic viewpoint that stands on the highest part of the promontory and dominates the whole valley and coast.

The coast of San Vito is characterised by little inlets, beaches and promontories, dominated by the "Trabocchi", which are very characteristic ancient fishing structures.

The main activities of the whole area of San Vito are tourism and agriculture because of the beautiful natural resources that the landscape offers, and also because of its prosperous oil production and fishing activities. San Vito is one of the most prestigious towns in the whole Adriatic coast for its fish cooking.
