Caramanico Terme

Description

Caramanico Terme is a town in the province of Pescara, located at the foot of the Majella massif, between the valleys of the Orta and Orfento rivers. It is one of the most important spa of the whole Region, due to its salso-bromo-iodic waters and sulphureous waters.
Although the first human settlements in this area date back to the Paleolithic period, the town of Caramanico terme was probably founded during the Lombard domination (VII century): in fact the place name derives from the Lombard word "harimann" (district). During the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies it became a fief of the D'Aquino family.
