  • This Romanesque Abbey has a charm all of its own ... sight that looks from the outside, from its portals and the outer cloister by the charm of yesteryear. "Management", without the slightest turiscono approach make further appreciate the structure.

  • There are no words to describe the charm of this place. Yes, because in addition the structure is just a suggestion both day and night. Visit only fragrance moves you. But then come back when you pray and again when there are concerts of classical music. Is every time a great impression. Convenient parking lots to about thirty meters, both arriving by sea, both coming from Fossacesia. Better yet cross the tree-lined boulevard from Fossacesia. ...

  • Very simple and immensely valuable meditative artistic cloister: Crypt with two wonderful Pantocratori. A view of the Gulf of Venus makes it one of the most beautiful and picturesque corners of abruzzo

  • 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.
