  • We visited both night and day. The evening was closed and we enjoyed the outdoor lighted, though not very much. To day was open, and the Interior is not held equally well. Then there's a pretty cloister and a space below the altar inside the Church.

  • Much of Abruzzo know with great probability the great Abbey of San Giovanni in Venere, another example of abruzzese Romanesque rising prevailing over a hill overlooking the coast of trabocchi near Fossacesia. What you probably know less that in the 12th century, the Abbey withdrew Saint Berardo, a native of Isola del Gran Sasso, patron of Teramo Abruzzo and one of numerous Saints. A personal curiosity that I love of the Abbey is the presence in the portal, a Gospel scene lovely but little represented in Christian iconography (at least not me it happened other times to see it): the meeting of Mary and Elizabeth both expectant mothers of two creatures that will change the history of mankind ... Jesus and John the Baptist. Abruzzo is a region to be discovered.

  • Well worth a visit. Lovely and cute cloister. Unfortunately within the Abbey there is a lot to see.

  • Stunning XI century abbey with a courtyard, on a hill facing the sea. A magical place.
  • Very well preserved
  • It is a place for the prestige of the monument, exceptionally beautiful, magnificent and steeped in history, as well as architecturally and artistically valuable, but also a place of great landscapes, now protected by environmental constraints. In the context of Costa dei trabocchi, is one of the chosen ones in Central Italy's environmental and cultural tours.
