Basilica di Santa Maria di Collemaggio, L'Aquila

4.8
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. A visit to Basilica di Santa Maria di Collemaggio represents just the start of the adventure when you use our L'Aquila trip planner to plot your vacation.
