New this year (2001) throughout Abruzzo are 'Le Vie della Transumanza' signs (literally 'the roads of the seasonal migrations of the flocks').  These signs mark historical points of interest relating to the transumanza throughout interior rural Abruzzo and they are part of an effort to increase tourism in the area. This one is in Lettomanoppello and points out a path to the Grotta S. Angelo, a cave which was the site of an 11th century hermitage, and which was also the site where, in the old days, the flocks were gathered and blessed in the spring before ascending to the high mountain pastures where they would spend the summer.
