There are several attractions for travelers to visit. There are at least six churches to visit including the Duomo (the city’s main church), located on the Piazza del Duomo, and Santa di Collemaggio (located outside the city walls). The final confrontation scene in the move Ladyhawke was filmed in this church.
Other places to see include the Museo Nazionale d'Abruzzo, which is located in the sixteenth century Castello [http://www.abruzzoheritage.com/magazine/2002_01/0201_a.htm] located in the northend of the city. The castle was designed by the Spanish architect "Don Pirro Aloisio Escriva" and is one of the most impressive castles in central Italy and possibly one of the earliest types of this type constructed. The Museo Nazionale d'Abruzzo has several different sections including paintings, Roman finds, but its most famous feature is the skeleton of a mammoth that was found in the local area.
There is also a daily market that is held each day (except Sunday) in the Piazza del Doumo. There you can find a wide variety of goods including clothing on sale by small vendors. The market is open from 0800 - 1400.
