Crecchio is a village of 3,021 inhabitants in the province of Chieti, part of the Abruzzo region in central Italy. The village preserves its medieval aspect and is dominated by its castle.Its main activities are agriculture and tourism, yet small family-run businesses exist.GeographyTerritoryCrecchio is located between the Adriatic coast and the pedemountain areas of the Maiella Mountain Massif. The Arielli and Rifago streams flow in the north west of the territory. These have cut deep valleys and have given rise to a hill with steep flanks, the top of which is occupied by Crecchio itself. In the south eastern areas, the landscape gently slopes towards the Moro stream. Even though the area as a whole is dominated by hills and valleys, there are several flat areas within the boundaries of the commune. These include the areas Pietra Lata, Casone e Macchie near the provincial road "Marrucina" (ex SS 538), at Fonte Roberto and Ciaò (between Villa Mascitti and Casino Vezzani), in the areas surrounding Villa Tucci (Padule, Pozzo e Capo Lemare) and at S. Maria Cardetola. The elevation slowly decreases from southwest to northeast. The minimum elevation of 86m above sea level is at Piano di Morrecine in the valley of the Arielli stream (northern areas) while the maximum elevation is 276m at the old railway station near the border with the commune of Arielli. The elevation of the municipality building is 209m. The average elevation of the single areas in which the whole territory has been subdivided into are listed in the following table:HistoryHistorical sources date Crecchio back to at least the 11th century, and archaeological evidence suggests it was inhabited at least as far back as the Roman era.
