Atri lies on the top of a hill overlooking the Adriatic sea from afar with the majestic Gran Sasso in the background. The town was famous and powerful as far back as in the X century, among others, due to its strategic location above the Vomano river. Today, Atri is one of the most important historical, cultural and artistic centres in Abruzzo. The surrounding landscape is also impressive due to the Calanques; i.e. the erosion of the clayey soil, which is typical for this area. The Regional Natural Reserve of the "Calanques of Atri, a protected area, is ideal for hiking, mountain biking, and bird watching.
Atri lies 450 meters above sea level and counts approx. 11.400 inhabitants.
