  • The largest Cistercian Abbey in Abruzzo with possessions until the 15th century in Le Marche and Apulia. Built on a beautiful promontory already occupied by a temple dedicated to Venus and counting items are scattered from the crypt at the exterior walls. Il portale della luna is definitely an unique masterpiece of medieval sculpture. Worth visiting.

  • A quiet sunny day at the end of January. Tourists close to zero. It is a good opportunity to enjoy the Abbey of San Giovanni in Venere. Situated atop a hill surrounded by a countryside full of olive groves, with a breathtaking view of the coast of trabocchi and the Adriatic Sea. The Abbey is monumental in its heyday also included a monastery that housed over the monks even pilgrims in need of hospitality. Striking the cloister that embraced on three sides. A must if you are in the area.

  • The Abbey is very nice to visit. Beautiful cloister and the crypt. It had a great view. Yesterday we relaxed sitting in the Sun and listening to the chirping of birds. Really a place that deserves

  • 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.
