Chieti Things to Do

    This museum shows archaeological finds from the Abruzzi mountains. It's not very big (approx. 10 rooms), but has one outstanding item on show: the Capestrano Warrior. This statue of a warrior chief from the Bronze Age (6th century B.C.) is used as symbol of the Abruzzi region nowadays. The Capestrano Warrior is quite unique, as there are only a few life-sized sculptures from native Italian tribes. It probably served as a some sort of grave marker.
    The rest of the museum is interesting as well, look out for the huge Hercules in the central hallway, for example.

    Opening hours: 9 - 20 (closed Monday)

    Every year on Good Friday, which is the Friday before Easter, a procession is held through the torch-lined streets of the old town. The participants wear masks and are dressed in the colours of their parish. Only men and children may take part. The procession also shows the symbols of the various stations of the cross (lance, rooster, cross, etc.) and is accompanied by an amazing choir. It is the most important procession of its kind in the Abruzzo region.
