Mosciano Sant’Angelo

Mosciano Sant’Angelo is a small town of about 10,000 inhabitants in the province of Teramo. It is located on a hill overlooking the valleys of Salinello and Tordino rivers. Today only six towers remain of the ancient walls that surrounded the medieval village. That makes Mosciano one of the most turreted towns of Abruzzo.

Mosciano grew by the church of San Michele Arcangelo, founded by the Benedictines in the Middle Ages. It was ruled by the Acquaviva family from the end of the 14th century to the end of the 18th.

The hamlet of Montone and the convent of Santi Sette Fratelli (Holy Seven Brothers), a few kilometers away from the village, are particularly striking.
