  • The basilica was completed in 1472 in honor of san Bernardino da Siena and the remains of the Saint are kept within the basilica itself, in a special mausoleum. In 1902 was declared a national monument. This beautiful religious work has been damaged by the earthquake of 2009 but by 2015 has been reopened to the public. It's definitely a monumental work to visit when you are in L'Aquila and is easy to get to. The Interior is nothing short of majestic.

  • Beautiful, newly renovated symbol of a strong revival in progress. In pointing to the stairs leading to the basilica to admire the hills surrounding L'aquila and the thousand cranes as a symbol of new future city life. Very interesting the surroundings of the basilica between streets in reconstruction, porches driven by young people and houses completely finished with all their historical beauty.

  • Unfortunately, following the earthquake that struck the city of L'Aquila, the basilica is not explored inside, but the outside isn't bad.

  • 15th-century basilica. To be observed especially the organ, a true work of art, and the magnificent coffered ceiling. Restored after the earthquake of 2009 and reopened to the public by 2015.

  • One of the largest churches of the Eagle returned to its former glory after the restoration after the earthquake of 2009. Beautiful and impressive facade completely white that stands out compared to the warm colours of the surrounding buildings. Within merit attention the beautiful wooden ceiling and the large organ located above the main entrance.
