Formed by a Union of Ancient Rivals The Province of Pescara was actually created when its namesake city was founded in 1927. Two long-term historic rival villages who were separated by the Atero River, Pescara and Castellammare Adriatico decided to give up the ancient feud and created the wonderful small city that we know today. Today, there are few traces of the ancient rivalries except by the ecology with the hilly coastal areas and the sandy shores and alluvial plains along with the famed Apennin Peaks. Overall, it is a region of spectacular beauty from sea to mountain and everything in between.
