What to see near the port of Termoli
Visiting Termoli while waiting to embark for the Tremiti is not a bad idea at all. The tour can start right from the port, one of the liveliest places in the city, famous above all for its fishing vocation. Termoli, in fact, boasts a fleet of highly respected fishing boats that daily supplies the local community and the surrounding areas with the freshest fish.
That fishing has always represented an important resource for the inhabitants of Termoli is also shown by the presence of trebuchets that follow one another along the entire wall that leads from the port to the ancient village. We are talking about a complex land based fishing system- also widespread on the Abruzzo and Gargano coasts - which allowed the inhabitants of Termoli to get fresh fish even when the weather and sea conditions did not allow them to go out to sea.
It is certainly not over. Both the ancient village and the city center are absolutely worth a visit. In the old part of Termoli there are the Cathedral of Santa Maria della Purificazione and the Swabian Castle. The first is an example of Romanesque architecture (13th century), while the castle dates back to the Norman period (11th century). Also special mention for Rejecelle, the narrowest alley in Italy, just 41 centimeters wide and about 8 meters long.
As for the center, finally, we point out the Corso Nazionale, the beating heart of the city where it is pleasant to walk and shop.
