Torre del Cerrano MPA has a particularly interesting geographical position also as far as the transfers to the adjacent areas are concerned. In only 10 minutes you can reach Atri, the fascinating city of art and queen of the Abruzzi hills. The town is literally surrounded by a wonderful and varied natural environment. The Gullies are a fascinating phenomenon deriving from the erosion of the atmospheric agents, and they have been compared to Dante's bolge. Also called "Scremoni", they are ravines consisting of Pliocene clay with a depth of over 300 meters. Today these natural monuments are protected by Calanchi di Atri Regional Nature Reserve.
