Città Sant'Angelo is a town and comune in the province of Pescara, Abruzzo, Italy.

History

Located in the eastern portion of the Vestine region. Mentioned by Plinius as one of four Vestini cities, Angelus or Angulum, where today Città Sant’Angelo stands. It is cited from the 12th century as "Castrum Sancti Angeli" (lat., Castle of the Holy Angels). It's historically established that it was a Guelph city destroyed in 1239 by Boemondo Pissono, executioner to Frederick II, Holy Roman Emperor of the Hohenstaufen dynasty, because the city was too loyal to his enemy, the Roman Catholic Church. Reconstruction began in 1240 and the city took the shape of a fortified nucleus in a semicircle. It gradually became one of several feudal possession, between the Carafa and the Piccolomini. The arrival of the monastic orders in the first half of the 14th century generated widening interest and finally a monastery was established. By 1528 it obtained the current name of the city. Gradually an agrarian bourgeoisie firmly established itself through to the 17th century. At the turn of the 20th century, many people left the region and joined the mass migration to the Americas. Today, it is known for its historical architecture and as a tourist location that offers its own unique variety of wine and cuisine.
