{{warningbox|This city was the epicenter of a powerful, shallow earthquake on 6 April 2009. The 6.3 quake destroyed many buildings in the town and sinkholes opened in parts of the town. Travel is not advisable as the town recovers over the coming months.}}
'''L'Aquila''' is the capital of the province of the same name in the region of [[Abruzzo]] in [[Italy]] and is located in the northern part of the province. It is a small, pleasant city that is surrounded by high mountains. The city was established by the German Emperor Corrado IV in 1254. According to legend, the town gathered the population from 99 local villages into the one city. Each group of villagers in-turn created their own church, resulting in a city of 99 churches and squares.
