The Trabocco, also called “travocco”, is an old fishing machine typical of the coasts of Abruzzo, Molise and Puglia. The Parco Costa dei Trabocchi is currently being established. It is the stretch of the Adriatic coast in the province of Chieti (Abruzzo), which stretches along the Teatina coast. This is a coastal strip among valleys and hills, overlooking the sea. This territory is rich in many landscapes and natural environments of various kinds. The Virtual Tour is made directly on the coast. It’s an interactive photographic document of the entire coastline.
According to their location, the “Trabocchi” can be considered as “trabocchi di porto” or “trabocchi di scoglio” and also as “trabocchi di levante” or “trabocchi di maestrale”, according to the winds to which they are exposed.
The Abruzzo region is known above all for its lush vegetation, parks, mountains, hills and sea. Its coastline is varied: from sandy beaches to the North to rocky outcrops that extend into the sea in the South. The stretch extending from Ortona in San Salvo is definitely the most picturesque, thanks to the beaches, cliffs, coves and “porticciuoli”.
