Termoli is one of the largest localities in Molise in terms of population and is located in the province of Campobasso, on the coastal area of the region. The historical nucleus of Termoli, a genuine fortified citadel, is on the top of a pent-up promontory on the Adriatic Sea. The most inhabited area stretches along the shoreline between the seals of the Biferno River and the Sinarca stream, in an area off the sand coast, which is fairly large, suitable for summer bathing.

The Harbour

Termoli is a sailor city. Its port is an important development point for the whole territory, for fisheries and commercial activities, but also for those touristic ones; from Termoli port tourists could reach the Tremiti islands and Croatia. Walking along the harbor, you see the Trabucchi, a typical building on the sea that, in the old days, allowed fishermen to fish even in bad weather when the boats could not catch the sea. These fishing gears are made from a deep pit embedded between the cliffs, ending with a platform connected to the mainland through a bridge. Two antennas stretching over the water hold a rectangular net, which, through a plane, is dropped into water.
