It is of significant natural importance thanks to its “Lecceta Litoranea” (“Coastal Holm oak”), established in 2001 to protect an ancient forest that stretches between the last stretch of the river Sangro and the Adriatic coast. It stretches over 175 hectares and it is one of the few coastal forests on the Adriatic sea.

In this town, there is also the British Military Cemetery, the so-called “Sangro River War Cemetery”, where lie 2617 military personnel from the territories of the British Commonwealth, which died in World War II during the battle for the breaking down of the Gustav line along the river Sangro.
