  • Do a review on a sacred place is incorrect because everyone lives in his own way this kind of experience. The uniqueness of the wooden staircase to climb on their knees and decorations that surround are a priceless treasure.

  • This old church overlooking a verdant Valley on the slopes of Gran Sasso in the charming town of Campli in the province of Teramo, has a beautiful and meaningful Holy steps which, in the Catholic tradition offers the ascent to Calvary by Jesus and in fact the scale of Campli is richly decorated with paintings on both sides that narrate scenes from the passion and death of Christ , coming to the Summit where a grate to glimpse a chapel that in addition to the valuable relics of the true cross among other houses a statue of 18th-century Jesus dead and lying and that of our Lady of sorrows of black dressed and elaborately decorated. Above the grate a painting of the Entombment of Christ in the Tomb. At the side of the Chapel a fresco with the Pope, who assured him the devotion the plenary indulgence in some periods and holidays of the year. Even the wooden ceiling is richly decorated with Angels carrying the symbols of the passion, which are then taken up in the staircase that descends, with less significant but also beautiful frescoes and ancient. Not to be missed.
