Treglio is a small village, the kind that you meet on the way to larger cities such as Lanciano, or the most popular villages such as San Vito. But in this small, well-distributed and picturesque village for 16 years talent has become a tradition: the rural, summed up in an event that annually brings together thousands and thousands of people from all over the Abruzzo. We were there we also, in the late afternoon. A banner “Welcomes” us opening a path made of alleys, basements, interiors of houses with chimneys in the center where the people cook, fry, prepare and share all that autumn has to offer.
Very interesting also the murals, which make the discovery of the event even more “surprising,” Treglio ycan be enjoyed as excursion in every month, even out of the many events that the Pro Loco has in place throughout the year.
Around the center there are not only spaces where to eat, but in the square next to the church, there is a stage where played popular music as the “pizzica”.
We find the wine, chestnuts, sausages, sandwiches with bacon, polenta with sausage, ventricina, scrippelle and can not miss the cakes, all at low prices, for common tasters, but for those more organized at the entrance there is a bag with glass gadgets.
