Travel Tips for L'Aquila

l'aquila and the cabbala

by call_me_rhia

L'Aquila is a town of about 72.000 inhabitants and it's the administrative center of the Abruzzo region... I am ambivalent about this town: there are great monuments to be seen, and beautiful mountains in the backdrop... but other than this I found it dirty and uncared for...

its main symbol is the fountain of the 99 cannelle (sports)... and 99, apparently, is an important number for the city. I liked more the cabbala behind this city than the city itself... it was founded by Frederic II of Svevia, who wanted it to be the new Jerusalem... he had a plan: the most important buildings of the city had to be laid out so as to copy the pattern on the aquila (eagle) constellation.

99 seems to be the magical number connected with the city... it seems like that it was founded by uniting 99 villages of the area. Each village had to build a city quarter with a church, a square and a fountain.
e Spagnolo, compaiono entrambi i simboli.

A different kind of architecture

by iandsmith

The half bricks poking out of buildings must have some name but, of the people I spoke to, no one seemed to know.
The building on the right is where I had my evening meal in L'Aquila. It houses a local trattoria. It was smoky, as many on them are, but the food was good and I love the atmosphere of trattorias generally.
All this is in the Piazza San Biagio.
