Categories: Churches, Tourist Spots
Admire the remarkable Abruzzese Romanesque and Gothic architecture at Basilica di Santa Maria di Collemaggio. While parts of the 13th-century church were damaged during the 2009 earthquake, including the cupola, transept vaults, and triumphal arches that collapsed, the striking jewel-box facade remains intact. This site is the resting place of Pope Celestine V, who devised a penitential observation on the same grounds called the Papal Jubilee. During your visit, keep an eye out for the gilded central rose window and the 14th- and 15th-century frescoes. Put Basilica di Santa Maria di Collemaggio at the forefront of your travel plans using our L'Aquila vacation trip planner.

Fabrizio TonnaVery good the get there on foot as far as 300 metres there is a bus/bus depot. Beautiful outdoor green spaces, well kept and cared for in every detail. The monument is a small jewel of carvings on marble and with an incredible amount of detail and overall complexity. The Interior has not been possible to visit because the Basilica is still closed due to the earthquake of 6 years ago. Visited October 2015show original
