Un'Abbazia davvero suggestiva, posta sulla sommità di una collina da dove si domina la costa dei Trabocchi e ubicata a poca distanza dal centro di Fossacesia. Edificata dai monaci benedettini tra il V... more »There really atmospheric, located on top of a hill from where it dominates the costa dei Trabocchi and located a short distance from Fossacesia. Built by Benedictine monks between the sixth and seventh century. on the ruins of an ancient pagan temple dedicated to the goddess Venus, the present building was commissioned by Abbot Oderisio II, buried in the sarcophagus immured on the main façade. Inside the Church has the classic structure of the Cistercian basilicas with three naves. The presbytery is raised with the high altar consisting of a single marble slab. Under the presbytery is the crypt, divided by columns belonging to the ancient temple of Venus, where you can admire frescoes of high quality and recent restoration. Also of interest is the cloister with trefoils.
Se siete nella zona di Lanciano o siete di passaggio, la visita di questa abbazia merita una gita o una piccola deviazione. Situata su un colle, l’area che circonda la chiesa vera e propria è piuttost... more »If you are in the area of Lanciano or are passing through, visiting this Abbey is worth a day trip or a little detour. Located on a hill, the area surrounding the Church proper is quite wide and offers a breathtaking view of the promenade and the countryside below. The Church itself is composed of a massive building that makes it almost look like a fortress and a severe but elegant façade. The Interior is basic and austere but with that sense of austerity can convey a sense of solemnity and peace at the same time. Also worth a visit is the Hall that opens beneath the altar that houses three altars. Beautiful also the cloisters inside the building surrounding a garden green and lush. Visit absolutely recommended.
Stunning XI century abbey with a courtyard, on a hill facing the sea. A magical place.
Very well preserved
At dusk is a blast. The crypt, the cloister and the Interior are three pearls. The sculptures on the central portal are real marble lacework. Has nothing to envy to the great northern European Churches ... The Passionist fathers, then, in the person of the superior, are impeccable and zealous especially for weddings and for spiritual direction. Honor and merit.
