  • Simplicity and a lot of spirituality in this Abbey integrates near the caves of frasassi: worth the trip other than caves!

  • The Abbey "brings" great his 1000 years of age. Massive, massive and austere, yet incredibly stylish plastic, dominates the area "Terme" at the entrance to the Frasassi Gorge. Open, after passing the little "courtyard" for catechumens, has within it all the features of the first Romanesque period. Roman arch, massive columns, slender Windows like slits. Shame about the neglect of the "usual geniuses" who never miss a chance to scribble on the inside, although it is a monument and a place of worship. Close the nature museum and Tower on the Roman bridge that turns in the direction of Pierosara.

  • The Abbey of San Vittore delle Chiuse in Genga (An) is located. A delightful Romanesque jewel with simple lines, built by the Lombards, circa 1080. Represents an ancient testimony of Romanesque architecture in the marches. A gem to visit surely.

  • If you have not been to any cave, I do recommend to visit the nearby caves first before coming over San Vittore alle Chuise. In this route, the entry fee to Museum is included in the tickets to the caves.
  • Beautiful Abbey inserted in a landscape considerably. The visit is a must if you are in the area for the visit of the caves or a walk in the gola della Rossa. Many options nearby to taste typical dishes of the Marche region.

  • Beautiful Romanesque building of white stone, with a square plan, with low towers has more the look of a fortress than a church. Extraordinary and spectacular karstic rocks between high mountains.

  • The Abbey is a beautiful Benedictine monastery of the X century, consists of two buildings: the Romanesque church and the Benedictine monastery, which now houses the Speleo-paleontological Museum Genga. The place is worth a visit not only because you are very close to the Frasassi caves (which you can also reach a quick walk from the parking lot of the caves), but also because the Abbey is objectively photogenic and transmits – like the entire village--a sense of peace and tranquility; Finally, because the entrance to the Museum is included in the ticket for the caves. This last consideration refers not so much to the financial issue, but merely to the fact that after spending over an hour in the caves, you are an understandable curiosity for caving. My daughter also loved the paleontological section of the Museum because he saw the fossils who is studying the 3rd grade. In front of the Abbey you pass under a tower and cross the Creek thanks to an ancient Romanesque bridge, which is also quite photogenic.
