Castelbasso Cultural Project

Castellato rose around year 1000 on a hill spanning the Vomano and the Tordino valleys, although many rests of settlements dating back to the Italic and Roman periods were found on the surrounding territory.

This Municipality includes two historical centres, Castellalto e Castelbasso, the modern village of Castelnuovo and a series of mountain hamlets articulated along the slope above the Tordino.

The Church of San Giovanni Evangelista in Castellalto  with its 16th-century portal and 18th-century paintings deserves to be seen and so does the Church of  the Madonna degli Angeli embellished by a baroque altar and 18th-century paintings.

Surrounded by the ancient town walls, the little town of Castelbasso has kept its original mediaeval structure is quite evocative. The historical centre, mediaeval palaces and the Church of  SS. Pietro e Andrea with its square three-naves layout are worth visiting. The latter has a 14th-century portal and a16th-century stone baptistery while the stuccoes that adorn it date back to 17th century and the altar pieces to the 18th century.

The cultural summer festival  “Castelbasso, progetto cultura” is an important international event, that takes place in Castelbasso and stages every year visual arts, musical, theatre and literary events.
