  • The view from the church is quite lovely and we thoroughly appreciated being able to gaze at the Volto Santo. It's amazing how this thin piece of fabric still even exists and then to have the image of...  more »

  • amazing, great treasure.
  • A simple shrine, architecturally beautiful not to admire, but with a strong symbolic value as an important relic of Christianity, the Holy face of Christ, arrived at Manoppello in 1506. Ask Dear brothers present to illustrate his story, I will be thrilled. The structure, built in the XVII century, in Renaissance style, original reports, to date, changes made on the façade in the middle of the 800 and extensions made in the years ' 60 to encourage the influx of pilgrims. The place is daily visited by the faithful and tourists, but almost never overly crowded. Inside there is a souvenir shop (which, personally, I find it quite out of place). Outside there is a bar and a small square where you can relax in the shade.

I say, we are in abruzzo and lacks the pork .... with these humble things he attracts people, it is a day to spend in joy and prayer .... then if it would be pure sci-fi arrosticini. via that restaurant next to the Church is like a punch in the eye ...

  • Didn't know about the Holy face. Externally the Church is particular, inside a little less. Interesting the Holy face and the Museum.

  • [EN] Silent, beautiful place with great treasure. Sanctuary is placed on the very top of a high hill. The stee [, winding road, with an amazing view of the city, guides us to the top. [PL] A fairly inconspicuous, situated on top of a hill. Winding, steep road that provides a phenomenal view of the city below. Sam Church, a quiet, inconspicuous. Sling has something mystical. Standing close to and to be able to look "face to face" with a Face on it, it is settled, is an extraordinary experience.
