Province of Pescara
GeographyThe province of Pescara, in the shape of shoe, is bordered by the province of Pescara to north, that of Aquila in the east, that of Chieti and the Adriatic Sea in the south and the east. The province touches only one any small portion of the Adriatic Sea (approximately 10 km). Inside, in addition to the many cultivated argillaceous hills, one distinguishes two mountainous groups: Gran Sasso in the east, which has only small tops ignored in this part, and whose principal top falling down in the province is Assembles it Siella (exceeding little 2000 meters); on the other hand, in the south of Gran Sasso, Majella is characterized in this province by its septentrional buttresses precipice, very wet and very wooded, which joined all the same the 2795 meters (2nd culminating point of the Apennines after Corno Grande, this mountain rounder is shared between the provinces of Pescara, Aquila and Chieti, which join all the three here their own culminating point). In the extreme south of the province, the mountain of Morrone (2061 meters) is a mountain with share which is detached from Majella by the collar of San Leonardo (1285 meters). This mountain of modest altitude but of imposing pace, divides the province of Pescara de Sulmona. From a hydrographic point of view, the province is divided into two river basins, large and small. The small one corresponds to the basin of the Saline river, which is not born far from the sea from the intersection from two rivers: Tavo and Fino (paradoxically, the Saltworks which emerges with the sea do not have a true source). Tavo and Fino are not very long (a score of km each one) and are born both with the foot from Gran Sasso, in its Adriatic slope. The large basin corresponds to the Pescara river, which is born upstream from the province, beside Sulmona. On its first km of course, Pescara meets its principal affluent: Aterno, 80 km length, which pass by Aquila (always also paradoxically, Aterno does not give its name to the remainder of its course, which would be much longer than current Pescara). On the whole, Aterno-Pescara, which is born on the slope from Aquila from Gran Sasso, traverses 145 km (it is the principal basin of the Abruzzi, and which has the largest flow of the area). This river crosses the deep throats of Pescara (which divide Gran Sasso of the majella), where it receives other affluents, like Tirino on the side of Gran Sasso, and Orta on the side of Majella (they belong to the most limpid rivers of Italy!), then Pescara emerges between the hills. With its mouth, this river is channeled.
