Excursion between sea and legend to the Tremiti Islands
From our residence by the sea in Abruzzo you can reach in no time one of the most famous destinations in the area: the Tremiti Islands. Born, according to legend, from three rocks thrown into the sea by Diomedes, the Tremiti Islands boast an extraordinary mix of natural, historical and religious beauty.
The Sanctuary of Santa Maria a Mare
The whole history of this archipelago is closely linked to the vicissitudes of one of its most famous beauties: the Sanctuary of Santa Maria a Marelocated in St. Nicholas.
The Sanctuary, a Romanesque building overlooking the sea, was built, according to legend, by a hermit to whom the Virgin appeared: still today it allows pilgrims and tourists to enjoy its calm, almost transcendental atmosphere.
