(4.5/5 based on 60 reviews on the web)
San Liberatore a Maiella is an abbey in the territory of Serramonacesca, in Abruzzo, Italy.HistoryThe origin of the abbey is traditionally linked to Charlemagne, who is portrayed in a fresco fragment within the church. The 9th century edifice was rebuilt a first time from 1007 by the Benedictine monk St. Theobald. It is dedicated to St. Liberator.The current edifice, however, is that rebuilt starting from 1080 by Desiderius, abbot of Montecassino.The church remained in a decaying state until it was restored in 1967-1971.ArchitectureThe abbey has a white façade with balanced volumes, flanked by a square-plan bell tower with three floors, having single, double and triple mullioned windows. The façade has vertical relief in Lombard-Romanesque styles.The interior is on the basilica plan with a nave and two aisles, divided by seven round arcades with triangular piers.The triumphal arches led to the presbytery. The arches are supported by cruciform pilasters which end with notable decorations, in a style similar to that of the nave's walls. The ceiling has wooden trusses. In the left aisles are the former accesses to the cloister and the monastery residential quarters, represented by two decorated doors. One has in its tympanum the typical flower motif of the Abruzzese Romanesque style.

  • Interesting place for those interested in a picnic with your family or for a walk. Descending down towards the River, there is a nice path to do in nature. Is not a complex path and is quite comfortable, suitable also for children. The picnic area is well kept, clean, there are coffee tables (although few). A recommended place for those who want to spend a day with his family in peace

  • A special place like few others, a stone's throw from a cave complex striking between the Gorges of the river. Too bad it was closed ...
