We are at last taking possession of our flat in Villa Sant'Angelo, L'Aquila and will be there from 16-23 May this year.
Lanciano is a town and comune in the province of Chieti, part of the Abruzzo region of central Italy. The city is also known for the first recorded alleged Catholic Eucharistic Miracle. One of the main sights in Lanciano is the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Ponte ("St. Mary of the Bridge"), so called because it is built on bridgework along a precipice: is the work of Michitelli (1619) and has some paintings by Pozzulaniello (Giacinto Diana). It houses also an 8th-century Byzantine statue portraying the Madonna, probably brought here during the iconoclast controversy.
