INTRODACQUA

The village as it reveals its name was always linked to the presence of the water that here abundantly gushed out in the mountain sources and in the streams that slide on the hills placed between the S.Antonio's valley and Contra. Interaquas, that means within waters, as it called the monks of the Saint Clemente Abbey who sent some tenant farmers in IX century to take advantage of sources of the place for the cultivation of lands, property of the abbey.

Introdacqua declares its vocation also through some architectonic elements in the city like Fontanavecchia (1706).
Worthy of visiting the rests of the medieval village with the impressive defensive tower (XII cent.), main symbol of the village and Palazzo Trasmondi (XV cent.), seat in the past of feudal power.
Between the religious buildings the Church of the SS. Annunziata (XII cent.) with Romanesque bell tower, the Church of the SS. Trinità (XI cent. restored in the XVII cent.) and the church of Addolorata that keeps the statues of Dead Christ and the Addolorata, brought in procession the Saint Friday of Easter.
