Caramanico Terme is a comune and town in the province of Pescara in the Abruzzo region of Italy, situated near the confluence of the Orfento and Orta rivers, on a hilltop between the Monte Morrone and the Majella mountains. Wikipedia
The town takes its name from either cara, meaning rock, or from arimannia, a Lombard establishment in the late Middle Ages. Then the name Terme was added in 1960 because of the presence of a spa nearby.
The present settlement is recorded since Lombard times. Then it underwent a remarkable development in the 14th-15th centuries, under the D’Aquino family, and in that period many important monuments were built.
In 1706 an earthquake nearly destroyed the town.
The surname “Caramanica” may have originated from this area.
