  • The highlights are: the view from afar, the portal, the crypt with frescoes, the cloister. Board of match this visit a packed Trebuchet and visiting roccascalegna

  • Stupenda Abbey! We were here at the time of a concert me and my boyfriend ... Abbey large and charming, with a touch of mystery!

  • We found it very simple, against our expectations. Very nice. The crypt is gathering and with some frescoes still well preserved. To see.

  • Stunning XI century abbey with a courtyard, on a hill facing the sea. A magical place.
  • Visited 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.
