  • The Abbey Florense is a major architectural work of San Giovanni in Fiore, founded in about 1200, Romanesque-Gothic style. At the entrance you can appreciate the original limestone Portal bridge, it was impacted by the imposing nave accentuated by high walls and bare. At the bottom there is an altar in Baroque style (as opposed to the austerity of the building) and the most valuable element of the complex: the apse with the particular circular Windows. In the side chapel there is a steep and narrow staircase leading to the crypt where the remains of Joachim of Fiore. In the nave, the Centro studi Joachimites has set up a permanent exhibition with replicas of the boards of the Liber Figurarum, code depicting the complex thoughts of Abbot on the Trinitarian theology of history. In the East Wing of the complex abadiale on two floors there is a Folklore Museum ethnographic character. In the end a few meters from the Abbey there is still an element of the ancient city walls and gateway to the monastery: the Norman arch.
