The city of Chieti lies on a crest along the Pescara river with its unmistakable profile of the high belltower of San Giustino against the sky, a few km away from the Adriatic Sea, and with the Majella and Gran Sasso mountains in the background. It was a Roman town with the name of Teate, and an important medieval centre, so that Roman and medieval ruins are found side by side.
