There are no words to describe it, it's great!!! The building dates back to 1200 and has been perfectly preserved. Enjoy a breathtaking view on one of the most beautiful coastlines of Italy, that of the "costa dei trabocchi". The Interior is clean and simple and entering through the center aisle you notice the magnificent steps leading to the altar. Side entrance of the Church, immediately to the right, you can get off the steps leading to the crypt while crossing the aisle can be accessed via a doorway to cloister covered with a central garden. Already for that alone is worth a visit. The Abbey is very much used obviously for weddings and concerts. Nearby there are restaurants, bars and hotels, always very discreet and never invasive. From the balcony terrace you look towards Fossacesia and the Valley of the Sangro. Go there, you won't regret it!show original

The view of the Gulf of Venus is breathtaking and the Abbey, restored in and well maintained, is a charming building in a quiet, almost mystical. Beautiful crypt, equipped also for disabled people. Free admission and parking. There is also an outdoor bar for those who want to consume something.show original
Stunning XI century abbey with a courtyard, on a hill facing the sea. A magical place.
Laura BertonazziVisited the Basilica of San Giovanni in Venere, its cloister and garden, from the square, which opens on the back with three apses, one can contemplate a magnificent view of the Abruzzo coast, visible from the seafront in Fossacesia Marina to the tip of the port of Vasto. Inevitable focus their gaze on the fields of olive trees with their outstanding Green Seal connecting the hot pink color of the stone of the basilica at shades of blue of the sea, alongside the road leading from this terrace runs along the Hill, towards the marina at Fossacesia. Also, Pine Avenue trail that starts from the square itself, also leads to another view of the coast of Trabocchi (the typical wooden constructions used for fishing) where you can see the Gulf of Venus overflows. The late afternoon light, until sunset, when the Sun from the West strongly illuminates the whole coast, creates a truly exciting and intense. At the end of the Avenue of pines, which from Fossacesia country leads to the Basilica, a strip of lawn, flanked by a clump of Oleander, alternated in their every nuance, anticipates the steps leading to the façade of San Giovanni in Venere embellished from the portal of the Moon; just before there is a hotel/restaurant where you can try excellent fish dishes. On the other side a bar/restaurant with outdoor seating in the shade of the pines offers faster and the typical "kebabs" from the Abruzzo region. A must experience. Laura Baig.show original
