1. Chiesa di San Domenico
The church of San Domenico is located in Chieti, on Corso Marrucino, overlooking Piazza Giovan Battista Vico. Built as a monastery dedicated to St. Anne, run by the Piarist monks of St. Joseph Calasanz, from the second half of the '600 housed a school of classical studies, in contrast with the Jesuit College of St. Ignatius, which became in September 1861 one of the first royal classical high schools in Abruzzo, called real boarding school "Giambattista Vico". It also houses a national boarding school. Since the monastery of the Dominicans and the church, not far from Corso Marrucino, were demolished in 1913 in agreement with the Province of Chieti to build a new building, the Government Palace, the church with the Pious schools has assumed the current name of San Domenico al Corso - San Domenico nuovo.
