The Sangro is a river in eastern central Italy, known in ancient times as Sagrus from the Greek Sagros or Isagros, Ισαγρος.

The mouth of the Sangro

It rises in the Abruzzo National Park in the Apennine Mountains, before flowing northeast through Castel di Sangro, Ateleta, Quadri, and Villa Santa Maria, before flowing into the Lago di Bomba or Lago del Sangro. From there it flows northeast and joins the Aventino River, and thence into the Adriatic Sea south of Punta Cavelluccio.
